Famous shipbuilding company seek ventilation solution for renovation project

One of Britain’s most famous shipbuilding companies recently contacted Andrews Ventilation Hire in search of some effective extraction equipment. The requirement stemmed from their need to convert a famous old navy ship into a shipping container.

As part of the renovation project, the client in question was expected to remove large steel components from the ship before welding structure back together and making it watertight. Our specialists were tasked with providing a regular flow of fresh air throughout the container to ensure the removal of all toxic fumes given off by the welding equipment used.

One of our regional experts surveyed the site and proposed a ventilation hire package consisting of ten FV900 S2 fans, which were used to extract polluted air from the confined space and duct it outside the application and into open air.

Our customer was extremely impressed with the effectiveness of the short-term ventilation system we recommended – keeping the units on hire for eight months while the project was ongoing.
