Helping to keep the country’s hospitals in good health
Published:  09 February, 2017

Byworth Boiler Hire has been supporting Hospitals throughout the country for many years providing both steam and LTHW hire boilers for ad hoc hire and to cover annual inspections or peak seasonal loading.

The first major hospital contract Byworth secured was in 2005 when three new Yorkshireman 6000kg/hr dual fuel trailerised hire boilers were built to support Doncaster Royal Infirmary conversion from a coal to gas fired boiler house. At the time these were the largest boilers that Byworth had trailerised and were designed to fit into a standard box van trailer with all ancillaries to make each unit a complete boiler plant room. In addition to the boilers, a range of additional plant was supplied to meet site requirements including 5M twin wall chimney extensions and a blowdown water tank. Following the success of this 18 month contract the company has continued to supply the health care sector leading to many more boilers being put into service.

In most cases sites require multiple boilers to ensure security of supply. Byworth Boiler Hire says its ability to provide modern efficient plant has ensured continued success in this sector.

The company highlights how Kettering General Hospital made fuel savings of over £123K within 12 months of a pair of new Yorkshireman dual fuel hire boilers being supplied to provide an installed capacity of 11,000kg/hr. Having been on site for 18 months, the company says an excellent working relationship has developed which it says is key to the efficient day to day operation of the hire plant.

Brian Mellon Kettering Hospital’s technical manager said: “Byworth Boiler Hire has provided excellent service over the duration of the hire period and we are very happy with both the Yorkshireman boilers and the company’s response times. A third 6000kg/hr Yorkshireman boiler is now on order to cover our winter period to ensure the site has n+1 for any cold spell.”

More recently Byworth was asked to provide assistance to Aintree Hospital, Liverpool where their main boiler house had to be shut down prematurely. Following an initial site visit in March 2016, a pair of Yorkshireman dual fuel boilers rated at 6000kg/hr & 7,000kg/hr were supplied and installed in May 2016 and are now acting as a holding operation whilst major works are being undertaken.

As many hospitals have aging plant the ability of Byworth Boiler Hire to provide short, medium and long term solutions has proved to be very popular in the current financial climate. Byworth’s expert project management team will work with site engineers to plan, co-ordinate and manage all boiler hire installations. Turnkey projects including delivery, positioning, installation and commissioning together with training ensure that critical operations go uninterrupted.
