Lancashire Police – VMU Boiler Renewal
LocationPolice Headquarters - Hutton
SectorPolice & Emergency Services
RequirementsPlant room refit
ObjectiveReplace inefficient boilers and pumps
We were asked to provide a cost for a refit of the plant room supplying heat to the Vehicle Maintenance Unit at the Hutton based Headquarters.
Successful in competitive tender, we were awarded the contract to complete the works.
The 3 existing boilers were inefficient by modern standards, and beyond their serviceable life from a spare parts perspective.
Removing the boilers
The boilers were stripped down to individual sections to facilitate removal from the plant room.
As part of the project, new and efficient inverter-driven pumps were installed to further reduce the carbon footprint of the site and lower running costs.
The finished job
With the old boilers, flues, associated pipework etc. removed, the new boiler occupies a fraction of the available space.
Introduction of a plate heat exchanger ensures that the new boiler is hydraulically isolated from the existing pipework and heat emitters.
