Gwella were delighted to have worked with Chillflow Solutions on a recent thermal insulation project on an RFA vessel undergoing a refit in Falmouth, Cornwall.

Our insulation engineers have vast experience working within the marine sector as this project is particularly challenging due to converting flat sheet, halogen-free nitrile rubber sheets to fit in and around the pipework and fittings. As you can see from the photos, bespoke bends need to be formulated from the sheet to fit around the fittings, which requires our engineers to have the highest levels of skill, not only to ensure the finish product is cosmetically correct, but also to ensure the insulation is fitted correctly to avoid condensation, especially when the vessel is operating in warm climates.
