Client Requirements

When the University was planning the build of a new boiler house the prospect of a construction project on a busy campus was a major challenge in respect of the inconvenience anticipated.

Pre Fabricated Boiler House Installation

Turnbull & Scott provided a containerised Boiler House which was fabricated off site and delivered as a complete solution, ready to ‘Plug & Play’.  Measuring over 4m in height and with an area of 64m², Turnbull & Scott installed the following:-

  • 2 x BIB Cochran Wee Chieftain 1.4Mw gas fired steam boilers.
  • 5,000 ltr stainless steel insulated hotwell tank manufactured by Turnbull & Scott.
  • An automatic blow-down system with a 1,000 Ltr blow-down vessel.
  • Water softener and chemical treatment plant.
  • Gas & steam meters.
  • Finally, when this 31 ton structure was complete, it was loaded in two sections for delivery to the site in Manchester where Turnbull & Scott crews connected up all the pipe work and commissioned the boiler house in a matter of days.

Benefits to the Client

The containerised boiler house solution offered flexibility of design, and the possibility to dismantle and move the system to another location on the campus in the future if necessary.

The Self-Contained Boiler House

Turnbull & Scott offer a complete power unit supplied as a self-contained boiler house. Our biomass, oil or gas fired options supply a customised output and can be used in any external location. Everything is ready for connection to the pipework, and normally this can be commissioned with in a day. An ideal replacement for ageing equipment, as back up heat source or to avoid a ‘shutdown’.
