nov 16 17Byworth Boiler Hire Helps To Keep The Country’s Hospitals In Good Health

Byworth Boiler Hire has been supporting Hospitals throughout the country for many years providing both steam and LTHW hire boilers for ad hoc hire and to cover annual inspections or peak seasonal loading. (Read More)

The first major hospital contract Byworth secured was in 2005 when three new Yorkshireman 6000kg/hr dual fuel trailerised hire boilers were built to support Doncaster Royal Infirmary conversion from a coal to gas fired boiler house. At the time these were the largest boilers that Byworth had trailerised and were designed to fit into a standard box van trailer with all ancillaries to make each unit a complete boiler plant room. In addition to the boilers, a range of additional plant was supplied to meet site requirements including 5M twin wall chimney extensions and a blowdown water tank. Following the success of this 18 month contract the company has continued to supply the health care sector leading to many more boilers being put into service.

In most cases sites require multiple boilers to ensure security of supply and Byworth Boiler Hire’s ability to provide modern efficient plant has ensured  continued success in this sector.

Kettering General Hospital is one such example where fuel savings of over £123K were made within 12 months of a pair of new Yorkshireman dual fuel hire boilers being supplied to provide an installed capacity of 11,000kg/hr. Having been on site now for 18 months an excellent working relationship has developed which is key to the efficient day to day operation of the hire plant.  

Brian Mellon Kettering Hospital’s Technical Manager said: “Byworth Boiler Hire has provided excellent service over the duration of the hire period and we are very happy with both the Yorkshireman boilers and the company’s response times.  A third 6000kg/hr Yorkshireman boiler is now on order to cover our winter period to ensure the site has n+1 for any cold spell.”

More recently Byworth was asked to provide assistance to Aintree Hospital, Liverpool where their main boiler house had to be shut down prematurely. Following an initial site visit in March this year, a pair of Yorkshireman dual fuel boilers rated at 6000kg/hr & 7,000kg/hr were supplied and installed in May and are now acting as a holding operation whilst major works are being undertaken.

Alan Forrester the hospital’s Senior Estates Officer for the project said: “The Byworth commitment has been excellent from day one which enabled us to get up and running within a short period of time. It has been a lot of work but once new pipework had been installed the boilers were delivered just outside our old boiler house which enabled us to readily connect into existing services.”
As many hospitals have aging plant the ability of Byworth Boiler Hire to provide short, medium and long term solutions has proved to be very popular in the current financial climate. Byworth’s expert Project Management team will work with site engineers to plan, co-ordinate and manage all boiler hire installations. Turnkey projects including delivery, positioning, installation and commissioning together with training ensure that critical operations go uninterrupted.

Byworth’s extensive fleet of over 100 hire boilers is constantly being enlarged, upgraded and maintained to ensure maximum continuity and efficiency. A number of ground breaking innovations such as X-ID tubes are now incorporated into the fleet. These unique tubes increase the heat transfer by over 80% versus plain tubes and are suitable for both gas and oil fired boilers. To further enhance efficiency boilers are equipped with state-of-the-art dual fuel burners with the option of Byworth’s unique Unity boiler management system for long term hire. The availability of gas fired plant ensures that when hire is needed the lower operating costs of Byworth’s modern package boilers can often offset the rental charges thereby making hire a cost effective benefit over existing installed plant.

Byworth also offers a comprehensive back-up service with a dedicated, experienced team of professional engineers, based throughout the UK, able to attend site quickly to provide full support.
