As pioneers in the field of environmental compliance, we are delighted to introduce a new 80kW electric boiler which is already kickstarting a change in the way people think about heating and hot water systems.

This groundbreaking innovation is almost three times as economical as an oil-driven alternative of equal capacity, providing customers with monumental cost savings on projects where its use is suitable.

Former Ford factory converted into temporary hospital

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, a 1950s industrial unit and former car factory in South Wales was transformed into a field hospital as part of a countrywide effort to overcome the virus. The 11,000 square metre site is now a renowned film studio and has undergone a drastic overhaul thanks to Swansea City Council’s collaborative work with various contractors.

Creating space for more than 1,300 beds over a two-phase project, the hospital is now fully operational and may potentially be used even after the effects of coronavirus have subsided. With this likelihood in mind, we were approached by the construction manager and asked to supply hired cooling and heating solutions to ensure that multi-seasonal climate control was available prior to opening.

Emergency boiler hire helps avert patient relocation at healthcare facility

An unexpected boiler failure can have a range of consequences for healthcare facilities and leave patients vulnerable. Issues are commonly detected and reported during the build-up to winter, and this was the case for a large NHS Trust looking after a dedicated mental health service in the South East. In this instance, a control malfunction had left the boiler inoperable, prompting the estates team to contact Andrews so that an alternative unit could be installed.

Our client contacted us late in the evening and requested the deployment of a replacement boiler hire as quickly as possible. Due to concerns about the potential for legionella bacteria to grow as a result of low water temperature, it was vital that we connected a substitute boiler that same evening.

Emergency boiler hire provides safe showering facilities at Nightingale hospital

Before the former Manchester Central railway station could open its doors as a functioning temporary field hospital, a solution was required to ensure that shower areas were ready for staff to use. The multi-purpose G-MEX convention complex was quickly converted into a 650-bed medical facility following various interior modifications that were essential in order for this to happen.

Prior to the hospital admitting its first patient, healthcare authorities stressed the importance of nurses, doctors and other professionals having constant access to a safe environment to wash. Our client was keen to find a reliable source of hot water to supply a 60-shower block, which could be operational within a short space of time. They called on us to provide a solution without disturbing contractors overseeing other parts of the fit-out.

Andrews launches modern electric boiler with built-in heat exchanger

We are delighted to introduce a new mobile electric boiler that provides clients with an all-encompassing solution to a range of applications requiring heating.

The compact 22kW boiler features a built-in heat exchanger to simplify installation, minimise footprint and removes the need for an additional HEX unit on site. This internal heat exchanger allows heat to be exchanged between two fluids without them mixing with one another. This is extremely important if the heating application is working with a chemical or an inhibiter.

New road trailer boiler improves emergency response times

We are excited to introduce a new innovation that changes the temporary boiler landscape, providing customers with an instantly connectable lightweight unit mounted upon a high-speed trailer that can be towed by any medium sized vehicle.

Originally trialled in 2019, our newly developed Rapid Response Boiler received an excellent response among customers which prompted us to commit to a significant investment of additional units both in the UK and in Europe.

This unit has been specifically manufactured for boiler maintenance and facilities management companies, providing an immediate solution to emergencies including boiler failure and breakdown. The Rapid Response Boiler will generally sit within a maintenance company’s facility or yard in readiness for an urgent requirement and can be hitched to a small van or medium sized car for swift delivery to site.

By deploying the boiler in this way, our clients can restore their customer’s facility almost immediately with a heating capacity of up to 100kW. This also allows potentially lengthier requirements to be assessed until a longer-term solution can be established.

The product ensures there is no need for a dedicated delivery vehicle, the use of tachographs or perhaps most crucially, additional staff resources.

Our Rapid Response Boiler can be collected, attached and deployed by a single person, with its Storz couplings simplifying the connection process which enables the unit to be operational within minutes of arrival on site.

An internal fuel tank allows the unit to operate at full capacity continuously for up to 11 hours, making it the perfect solution for urgent heating and hot water applications where swift action is essential.

Commonly used by boiler maintenance companies, the Rapid Response unit has been designed for a range of environments including care homes, hospitals, schools, utilities, sports centres, factories and offices. The unit can be positioned almost anywhere due to its compact frame and moveable chassis.

Emergency boiler hire keeps navy base operational

When one of the country’s most prominent naval bases suffered a leak on their district mains system, the facilities management company responsible for the site contacted us in search of an emergency boiler hire solution.

The client became aware of our services some time ago after our local territory sales manager visited site to promote our contingency planning capabilities. This initial consultation prompted the FM company to discuss the concept with senior figures at the naval base, who then instructed our client to engage with us due to ongoing issues with the district mains system.

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 Boilers keep healthcare residential unit functional during refurbishment project

The largest healthcare service in England had plans of undergoing an extensive extension and refurbishment project. However, before this could take place, a temporary boiler was required to provide the residential unit with constant heating while the boiler house underwent a re-fit.

Following an urgent call out, an Andrews engineer visited the location and recommended a 250kW boiler hire unit complete with temporary pipe work.

Logistical problems and a lack of space on the active site made it infeasible to station the temporary boiler near the existing boiler house. Our solution was to position the boiler a short distance away, providing the client with additional hose runs to connect to the existing flow and return stabbings.

Emergency boiler replacement keeps major IT consultant functional

When a boiler breaks down or loses effectiveness, a rapid response to the issue will help keep your building operational. Failure to address the situation quickly can have far-reaching implications for everyday businesses – including revenue loss. In December 2015, one of the UK’s biggest players in the IT sector suffered unexpected boiler failure at their briefing centre in Winchester, and this had the potential to delay a series of planned consultations with clients during the period.

The IT firm in question are wholly dependent on being able to host conferences because it enables them to ascertain the exact requirements of their partners. Without this, our customer is unable to provide the expected level of service and they will miss out on commercial opportunities as a result. The swift intervention of Andrews Boilers was therefore essential.
