Following a substantial property investment by the Andrews Sykes Group, our Italian subsidiary Nolo Climat has moved into a new depot located in the suburbs of Milan. The move will enable the business to continue its remarkable growth since first opening in Italy just seven years ago.

The new facility sits on a huge 4,000m2 site and is located very close to our previous depot in the town of Parabiago. The warehouse and workshops can now easily accommodate the largest of our chiller range along with the small portable units.

Sykes Pumps Hire provide emergency pumps for Salmon Farm

Sykes Pumps Hire was recently approached by a salmon farm in the Lake District, with the client requiring a solution to prevent and monitor low water supply.

Our client is based near a Cumbrian reservoir that was highly affected by the 2018 summer heatwave, which subsequently caused the availability of water to almost completely dry up. Amazingly, water levels got so low that the ruins of a previously submerged village began to reappear following a massive depletion of water. The small town was deliberately allowed to flood approximately 80 years ago in order to create a reservoir to provide water for Manchester and the North West of England.

Lincolnshire hospital kept operational thanks to Andrews’ boiler hire

As far as hospitals are concerned, there is no ideal opportunity or timeframe in which to carry out HVAC maintenance or similar. A boiler breaking down unexpectedly is therefore extremely unwelcome but when these things do happen, it’s important that you seek assistance from experts capable of overseeing this necessary transition.

This was the precise scenario a well-known Lincolnshire hospital found themselves in when their boiler arrangement required upgrading. A supplementary system was required to be in place between the original kit being taken offline and replaced, with the client estimating this could take up to 12 weeks.

Emergency boiler keeps historic hotel in business

When one of the most historic hotels in Hertfordshire was at risk of temporarily closing its doors due to a major refurbishment project, Andrews Boilers were urgently called in to offer their expert advice.

The hotel in question is wholly committed to ensuring their guests are provided with the highest standard of service – failure to provide this can tarnish a visitor’s experience and in turn and the hotel’s long-standing reputation.

So when our client’s boiler needed replacing as part of the development, a temporary solution was required urgently to ensure guests were supplied with hot water and heating throughout their stay.

Andrews Air Conditioning Hire provide emergency cooling for South Coast hardware company

When the European headquarters of a major research organization in Portsmouth required an urgent cooling arrangement to solve a problem with their chillers, Andrews Air Conditioning Hire were drafted in to prevent UPS batteries from overheating.

The computer hardware company were experiencing issues cooling their UPS back-up batteries, which are used as an uninterruptible power source should their primary supply fail.

In less than 24hours, our specialists carried out a site survey and decided to install two PAC 60s, giving 17kW of cooling duty each. These were accompanied by two ASF50 cooing fans, which were situated near the PAC units to help circulate cold air. One of the PAC 60s was placed at the top of the room and the other to the side to cool the two main areas of concern.

Rally Poland provides penultimate ERC test for Ingram

Following his heroics in Turkey last weekend, Chris Ingram’s focus once again returns to the European Rally Championships and another exciting test at Rally Poland.

A fantastic WRC2 debut yielded a podium finish and gave Chris a taste of what he ultimately aspires to – and the signs are good!
