Andrews provides tailored solution for underground tank drying application

Andrews Sykes has been a trusted heating and dehumidification specialist for decades – and with good reason. Recently, a Scottish water company faced a challenge with a tank that needed quick drying, and they turned to our knowledgeable sales engineers for a solution.

With the client opting for a free site survey, our engineer promptly visited the location in West Kilbride.

Upon arrival, it was discovered that the tank itself was below ground, making accessibility slightly more limited than anticipated. Challenging, perhaps, but certainly nothing we couldn’t contend with!

Major client, multiple units, no problem!

Our electric heaters have been flying off the shelves in France this winter but, sometimes, you just need something slightly bigger!

Earlier in March, our colleagues at Andrews Climat Location were approached by one of the country’s largest civil engineering and construction companies – Eiffage – seeking a solution on behalf of their client.

The end user was a multinational technology organisation with a very prominent presence in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.

Because of their rapid growth in recent years, the tech manufacturer was in the process of extending their site – and this is where the heating requirement came from.

What happened in Europe this month? – Valentine’s Edition


It’s the season of love, but we know that not everyone is a fan of Valentine’s Day. In some instances, self-care and personal growth must take priority. We’ve taken this somewhat literally in Belgium, with our progress in the region recently extending to opening a third depot in the country.

Our new property in Kortrijk gives us a wonderful platform from which to serve customers in the west of Belgium – as well as northern France – and we’re very confident that we’ll be able to make defining connections with a number of customers based in this expansive region. Love at first sight, or love at first site?

Products of the Month – February

February is the month of LOVE.

Love is in the air, and sometimes, in the water too! Our monthly product segment has returned again in February, and perhaps fittingly, now features a pair of units.

We’re not entirely sure how they met, but what we do know is that they are the perfect foil to Romeo & Juliet, or just about any other clichéd Valentine’s duo.

They say opposites attract, so let us introduce you to the new IT couple:

DE190 and Piranha S21

The DE190 is a high-capacity electrical heater with three different power settings – 21kW, 42kW, and fan only. It is ideal for heating large industrial spaces of up to 1,200m³ in size. This fully portable fan heater comes complete with an optional remote thermostat and is an ideal heating source for virtually any setting that requires high-capacity fume-free warm air. These include manufacturing facilities, building sites, and tank drying applications.

Andrews Heat for Hire stops cast stone manufacturers from becoming stone cold!

As a sustainability conscious company, we’re pledging to strengthen our efforts to reduce our waste production in 2023. So it was rather fitting that one of our first projects in the new year involved assisting another organisation to fulfil the same commitment.

In some industries, low temperatures are not conducive to maximising output and this can, in itself, also lead to materials being wasted or damaged. Many of our clients manufacture products or store raw materials that need to be maintained at a certain temperature to preserve their condition and eliminate the risk of items being destroyed or discarded.
