Shipboard ventilation systems supply and remove air to/from spaces throughout the ship. They control the quality of breathing air and protect personnel and sensitive equipment from potentially hazardous airborne contaminants, fires, explosions, and excessive heat.
Howden designs shipboard ventilation systems that
help improve air quality, reduce noise and enhance
overall installation. As a result, Howden is a preferred
partner for many Navy, Marine and Maritime ship
owners and operators.

Howden fans are custom engineered to move air continually, reliably and efficiently throughout shipboard ventilation systems. Howden meets the low airborne and structure borne criteria for many of the quietest U.S. Navy ship classes.

Our long history with air moving requirements for commercial and military vessels as well as a complete understanding of Marine and Navy installations has made us a preferred partner for many Marine and Navy operators.

With a full range of impellers, control systems and layout options, Howden axial fans satisfy virtually all applications.
