NHS’ new cancer centres require urgent source of heating

Falling winter temperatures are normally the catalyst for the healthcare sector turning to us for their temporary heating requirements – and this year has been no different.

Last week, we were contacted by a client in southwest England who is building a new cancer centre on behalf of the NHS.

To ensure the project could be completed on time, it was imperative that a solution was found to combat the cold weather affecting wet trade drying times.

Within hours of receiving the inquiry, our local expert conducted a site survey. This process allowed us to ascertain that temperatures on the building site would need to be kept above 18 degrees.

An Aurora FH185 DV Indirect Fired Oil Heater solution was subsequently recommended, along with a full bunded 3,000-litre fuel tank. A remote thermostat was also provided to allow temperatures to be controlled off site, ensuring everything ran as expected even while the equipment was unattended.

Our Aurora FH185 DV Indirect Fired Oil Heater was the perfect solution for this issue as it is 92% fuel efficient when operating at full capacity, making it extremely cost-effective when used on recirculation mode.

Once the units were delivered, Andrews engineers took swift action to position the ductwork in optimal locations in order to maximise the impact of our proposed solution.

Thanks to this prompt and successful installation, our client was able to relax knowing that the project was very much back on schedule – to the benefit of countless patients who will be reliant upon the availability of this specialist care.
