Rapid Energy was contacted by a high-end car manufacturing plant seeking assistance with maintaining adequate temperatures in their picking facility. The plant needed to sustain the area at a minimum of 15 degrees Celsius to meet regulations, but faced challenges due to ongoing construction work affecting temperature control on site.

One of our technical team members conducted a thorough site inspection to assess the needs. It was concluded that deploying four 200KW indirect diesel heaters would effectively address the heating deficiencies in the picking warehouse caused by poor insulation and continuous usage of the loading bay doors.

In close collaboration with the on-site facilities team, we deliberated on the safest and most efficient placement for the heaters and tanks. The goal was to minimise ducting routes and ensure that they wouldn’t impede the daily operations of our customer. Following the installation, we extended thermostats from the heaters into the building, configuring each one to activate at 16 degrees Celsius. This setup allowed the heaters to activate and deactivate as needed to maintain the desired temperature.

Rapid Energy has overseen fuel management for this project, continuously monitoring the daily consumption rate and organising fuel deliveries promptly as needed. This ensures uninterrupted services at the manufacturing plant site, preventing any disruptions due to fuel shortages.

Installation and location


The customer expressed satisfaction with Rapid Energy’s service and support during the installation process. The end user is now reassured that the temperatures necessary for staff safety are consistently achieved and compliance is met.

Rapid Energy anticipates collaborating with our client on any future heating needs.
