Hellenic Chapter Gets 'On Board' with Navy


ATHENS – The Hellenic Chapter is looking to jump on board with the Hellenic Navy to help improve shipboard energy and indoor air quality (IAQ).

Recently, Bill Bahnfleth, ASHRAE president, and members of the Hellenic Chapter met with leaders of the Hellenic Navy at the Hellenic Ministry of National Defense.

            “The Hellenic Navy is very interested in developing a working relationship with ASHRAE in areas including training, research, conferences, technical committee involvement and others,” Costas Balaras, former ASHRAE vice president, said.

As a first step, the Hellenic Chapter will organize a series of programs on hot issues like energy conservation and IAQ for the Navy's technical personnel, and in the near future, host a specialty conference on energy efficiency and IAQ for ships to be co-sponsored in Athens.

In the long run, the goal is to provide technical expertise and support for improving energy efficiency in the Navy's buildings and address IAQ issues in ships, possibly in collaboration with owners of commercial/merchant ships, according to Balaras.
