Andrew Green – 115m Superyacht – Dubai

We had Stuart onboard to carry out a survey of the chillers as we were struggling to keep the boat at temperature during the summer in Dubai. He used specialist test equipment that we had never seen any other contractors using and it showed us the exact cooling capacity being produced. He highlighted issues with that we hadn’t seen including liquid return and refrigerant contamination. He offered support explaining his findings and guiding us through the processes to fix the problems as we were in a remote location. Stuart is a specialist in his field and great teacher as well. I learnt a lot whilst he was onbaord and from the follow up support post visit. Thanks for your help, I look forward to working with you more in the future.

Tradewinds resolved our AirCon issues professionally, with minimal disruption to the boat, and for a fair price. It’s obvious they know what they’re doing, and are very experienced. I wouldn’t hesitate to have these guys back on the yacht.

ENSCO – John Nicholson

Tradewinds have been the only vendor out of 3 who could supply the correct engineering services within Ensco’s operational timeframe. They have twice came forward with the correct equipment and services when other approved HVAC vendors could not. They are competitive in their product line and offer another option in a very difficult market.

Borgsten Dolphin – Commissioning Services

“Stuart and his team of Commissioning Engineers rose to the challenge I issued to them late last year and mobilised 800 miles North from their base in Somerset, at very short notice, to help my client achieve the pre-commissioning and commissioning of their new HVAC installations for the upgrade on board the Borgsten Dolphin drilling rig. Through their dedication to the tasks presented to them they identified and helped our client to rectify any issues found during pre-commissioning and allowed the schedule to be remain intact.
In the end their efforts and attendance allowed the commissioning of the HVAC systems to be completed ahead of the sail away date and to the satisfaction of DNV, our client’s certifying body.”
