HVAC&R | Rebuild of MY Anodyne

MY Anodyne, originally constructed in Brazil in 2010, was purchased by her current owner in March 2014 and has been rebuilt at Derecktor Shipyards in Florida. Parker Stockdale – project manager, owner’s representative and captain of the vessel – chose LeBlanc & Associates, LLC as the supplier for the refrigeration systems. Stockdale: “I was introduced to Heinen & Hopman while working at Feadship seven years ago. I was completely satisfied with the experience I had with them in Holland, so once I learned LeBlanc & Assoc. was the US office for H&H the choice was easy.

A complete rebuild

Starting out as a non-intensive refit, the project has been upgraded to a complete rebuild and extension of the yacht, due to stumbling upon immense structural defects, extraordinarily dangerous electrical arrangements, along with a seemingly endless list of extremely sub-standard ship building practices. The owner decided to breathe new life into the vessel that would seem, was never meant to leave the harbour. The yacht features an entirely new exterior design and interior arrangement and decoration.


HVAC and Refrigeration

Originally, LeBlanc & Associates, LLC was only asked to supply the refrigeration and freezing systems for the yacht. However, after experiencing their flexible way of working and high-quality equipment, Stockdale decided to award the HVAC contract to LeBlanc & Associates, LLC as well. Stockdale: “The equipment offered by Heinen & Hopman, and by extension LeBlanc & Assoc. is superior in my view. As this project grew we needed the support of an experienced HVAC company to address a wide range of challenges for our installation. LeBlanc & Assoc. handled the refrigeration design, planning, and engineering so efficiently it was a logical choice to also pursue them for the HVAC work. I knew I would be in good hands.

Design conditions

The air conditioning installation was based on the following design conditions:

Summer conditions

Outside: 40˚C/55%RH
Inside: 18˚C/50%RH

Winter conditions

Outside: -15˚C
Inside: 25˚C/30%RH

Scope of supply

LeBlanc & Associates, LLC supplied the following:

  • Fans for toilets
  • Fresh-air AHU
  • Chiller
  • Fan coil units
  • Provision cooling plant
  • Evaporators
  • Stainless steel refrigerators
  • Control system
  • Galley extraction
  • Clothes dryer vent extraction

Nothing but the best

The finest materials, equipment, systems, and software were selected for this vessel. Moreover, the owner requested an exceptionally low noise level of 35 dB, challenging LeBlanc & Associates, LLC to design an extremely quiet HVAC system. Furthermore, a high-tech control system is provided, allowing the owner to control the complete HVAC and refrigeration system on a smartphone or iPad.

A very satisfied customer

When asked to describe his experience working with LeBlanc, Stockdale answered: “My experience with LeBlanc has been everything that I had hoped for. The support has been exceptional from the beginning, with thorough and precise responses that are just a phone call away. Our project manager just executed a site visit which yielded major strides in planning progress. I have every intention of using LeBlanc and Heinen & Hopman on all my future builds.
