Extreme electric racing seeks Andrews Heat emergency heating

Every year, London is selected as the ideal location for many exciting and innovative events – and 2019 has so far proven to be no different. One of these well-attended events recently took place near London Bridge, where a historic ship hosted an extreme electric car racing event.

The ship, which used to be a Royal Mail vessel servicing British territory, is the first of its kind to be used for this type of occasion. The rationale behind the choice stems from it being perceived as more environmentally friendly than traditional racing.

Electric heaters for large London event

One of the UK’s largest exhibition centres stands alongside the River Thames in East London and is well-known for hosting major trade shows and other high-profile events. Due to our previous involvement with the venue, Andrews Heat for Hire is regularly asked to assist when events are hosted here.

A temporary external structure outwith the main building was being used to host props, robotics and other sensitive equipment portraying the world’s most famous super heroes, which unsurprisingly attracted a great deal of interest from fans across the country.

Prime Minister Modi kept warm on London visit

When one of the world’s most powerful political leaders arrived to address an exclusive gathering at Wembley, a number of steps were taken to ensure the event ran smoothly.

Approximately 80kW of heat was needed to ascertain whether the chiller was ready to be commissioned, meaning some temporary equipment was sourced to facilitate the assessment being carried out.
