OEM Dynamics will supply heat exchanger to assist the “Virgin Money” Atlantic crossing speed record challenge. The recent world record challenge, to be the fastest yacht to cross the Atlantic, was assisted by an OEM Dynamics heat exchanger.
The OEM Dynamics marine ’WM series’ water cooled heat exchangers are used in many ocean racing maxi-yachts to cool oil in hydraulic applications. These heat exchangers are heavy duty and built to last.
The heat exchanger used was a WM40 series designed to cool 200 litres of oil per minute.
In June 2008, the yacht ‘Leopard of London’ crossed the Atlantic in 7 days, 19 hours, 20 minutes and 49 seconds, setting a new record for the fastest monohull ‘with powered winches’ crossing.
