Cruising To Coolness

The Situation

The busy cruise swhite_bayhip season kicked off in full force with P&O staging a publicity event hosting 5 mega cruise ships in Sydney harbour.

To accommodate the thousands of extra visitors additional temporary space was added to the White Bay Cruise Terminal with Active Air Rentals providing exclusive air conditioning for the Aria cruise ship passengers.

Following on from the successful air conditioning for the Aria, Active Air Rentals was again asked to provide air conditioning when another temporary terminal was erected in White Bay to accommodate overflow passengers.

The Solution

The temporary terminal included everything that the permanent facilities have including x-ray machines for passenger luggage.white_bay_2

Based on the size of the temporary facility and the thousands of people expected to use it two 90kW packaged unit air conditioners were specified. Inflatable duct runs were then connected and run the length of the temporary facility to provide even cooling.

The facility was powered using one 200kVA generator, a 400amp Powerlock road case and four single phase distribution boards.

The install was completed in just a day and the facility was used for four days before being removed until the next batch of overflow passengers arrive.
