Thermal Management Solutions for Electrified Harbour Machinery

In the bustling environments of harbours, where heavy machinery like cranes, lifters, and transport vehicles operate continuously, thermal management plays a pivotal role in ensuring efficiency and sustainability. At Lumikko, we specialize in advanced thermal management systems designed specifically for the unique needs of electrified harbour machinery, supporting a transition towards greener and more efficient operations.

Innovative Cooling Technologies for Optimal Performance

Electrified harbour machinery, including cranes and lifters, generate significant amounts of heat due to high operational loads and continuous use. Effective thermal management is critical to prevent overheating, maintain operational integrity, and extend the lifespan of these machines. Lumikko’s cooling solutions are engineered to optimize heat dissipation, even under the most demanding conditions, ensuring that machinery operates within safe temperature thresholds.

Heating Solutions for Diverse Climate Conditions

Harbours experience a broad range of environmental conditions — from extreme heat to freezing temperatures. This variability can impact the performance of electric batteries and hydraulic systems in harbour machinery. Our heating solutions are designed to maintain optimal temperatures, ensuring consistent performance and reliability of machinery throughout the year.

Customized Thermal Management Systems for electrified harbour machinery

Understanding that each harbour has unique operational demands, Lumikko provides customized thermal management solutions tailored to fit the specific requirements of different types of electrified harbour machinery. Whether it’s a giant crane lifting heavy containers or a fleet of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), our systems are designed to enhance performance tailored to the operational context of each application.

Reduced Environmental Impact and Enhanced Sustainability

Electrified harbour machinery plays a significant role in reducing the carbon footprint of port operations. By implementing Lumikko’s thermal management solutions, harbour operations can further decrease their environmental impact while improving energy efficiency. Our systems help in meeting stringent environmental regulations and support harbours in their journey towards sustainability.


Choosing the Right Materials for Thermal Management Systems in Harsh Environments

Effective thermal management in harsh environments, from the cold, biting winters of the Nordic regions to the high humidity and temperatures of tropical areas, requires the selection of appropriate materials that can withstand these conditions without degrading. At Lumikko, we emphasize the importance of material selection in developing thermal management systems that are both durable and efficient.

Corrosion Resistance in Diverse Climates

The choice of materials that resist corrosion is crucial, especially in maritime and coastal environments where salt spray and high humidity can lead to rapid deterioration of metal components. Stainless steel is often favored for its superior corrosion resistance and strength, making it ideal for use in heat exchangers and cooling systems. Additionally, coatings such as epoxy or zinc can be applied to other metals to enhance their durability against corrosive elements.

Thermal Conductivity and Stability

Materials used in thermal management systems must not only resist environmental degradation but also maintain excellent thermal conductivity. Copper and aluminum are widely used due to their high thermal conductivity, which allows for efficient heat transfer. However, in environments where these materials might face corrosive elements, protective coatings or the use of alloys designed to enhance corrosion resistance without significantly reducing thermal conductivity may be necessary.
