Dutch Barge Heaters

At sea or in harbour, stay warm!

For larger sea faring vessels such as the Dutch Barge, you’ll need a larger more complex heating system. But don’t panic, here at MV Heating we’ve made it as straight forward as possible to find the right heating system for you. All our heaters come with comprehensive kits so that you get everything you need for installation, straight out of the box. For Dutch barges, our water heaters are what you’ll need: The MV Hydro range!

The MV Hydro range of heaters are diesel powered water heaters, that can supply your cabin with warmth via fin rads, radiators and matrix heaters, or calorifiers for domestic hot water. They have low servicing costs due to a simple modular design and can be used to pre-heat the engine then automatically turn on the interior heater to defrost and heat the interior of the vehicle.

Typical Installation

The heater is normally fitted in the engine room. The heater will draw diesel fuel from the main fuel tank via the fuel pump. The water pump circulates the hot water around the boat to feed radiators or finrads to provide central heating plus hot water via a calorifier to provide hot water to the galley, bath or shower.

A 22mm 2 pipe system should be installed with ‘T’ off 15mm to the radiators to ensure good water flow through the heater.
