An interim solution for where space is at a premium

If you’re facing a commercial boiler refurbishment project where space is limited and an uninterrupted heating and hot water supply is essential, mobile boiler plant rooms can help.

What is a mobile or temporary boiler plant room?

A mobile boiler plant room is usually a form of trailer which has one or several boilers and/or water heaters installed – essentially a self-contained boiler plant that you can easily connect to an existing system from which you had to disconnect the existing boilers/water heaters. As the name already implies, it is easy to transport to the point of use. When it is referred to as a temporary plant room, it can also be a boiler plant which is installed in a container.

Why would I need a temporary plant room?

Sometimes, a commercial heating project can be more difficult to carry out, such as when there is limited space in the plant room. A temporary heating plant can then bridge the gap between disconnection of the old equipment and installation/operation of the new boilers. It can be connected to the premises and deliver heating and hot water as required.
