      • SWAC (Sea Water Air Conditioning) at a glance: It is a technology based on thermodynamics principles using the hydrographic system. It is made to produce thermal energy dedicated to buildings (air conditioning heat/climatization, hot water) or for industrial processes (cold rooms, drying, ice production, etc.).

        While the need for cooling in coastal regions and ports is increasing, cooling is still mainly produced through chillers, a technology using large amounts of electricity generated partially by fossil fuels, slowing down the ability to meet EU energy-climate objectives. Sea Water Air Conditioning cooling technology requires often to work closely with the maritime industry to develop innovation technology aspects such as self-burying system, flexible pipe concept, corrosion potential, and temperature data logger, etc.
