Our client, a nationwide M&E contractor was awarded a 2MW plant room refurbishment project and required a temporary plant room solution. This was a planned project, originally scheduled for 6 weeks so it was imperative that there was heating and hot water provided to 100+ apartments which the permanent plant room fed.
The client wanted to ensure there was no disruption to the services, whilst the project wad taking place. The client also wanted contingency built in with the proposed temporary solution to mitigate any potential downtime for the residents.
Rapid Energy conducted a site survey and then produced a scope of works that included the proposed solution. This included two newly built, fully tested and commissioned 600kW packaged plant rooms. By utilising two packaged boilers instead of a single 1.2MW unit, it allowed for built in contingency and would also increase efficiency as both units would work in tandem and modulate according to load demand.
Within the survey, the length and route of the flow and return hoses to connect into the plant room was established, as well as location of connection points on to the permanent system. The boilers landing location was chosen with both safety and logistics in mind. The landing location was challenging, due to limited space available and the distance.
Once the temporary boilers had been connected to the permanent system and commissioned, the engineers then checked the flow and return temperatures. Once temperatures had been reached, alarms were setup through each temporary boiler’s BMS to ensure our team at Rapid Energy’s HQ would be alerted should any issues arise. This is a 24/7 remote monitoring service that’s provide with all of our temporary packaged boilers.
