When Imperial Tobacco was looking for a cost effective solution to supply heating and hot water for its headquarters in Bristol, the project became a distinctly local affair for Fulton, a leading British manufacturer of steam, hot water and thermal fluid solutions.
Factory Maintenance Engineer, Gary Withey says: “The new skid-mounted steam boiler package was specified by our Bristol-based consulting engineers Hoar lea, built in Bristol by Fulton and installed by Spie Matthew Hall, also based in Bristol.”
Commenting on the new installation Gary says that although the old boiler house has been decommissioned and the factory demolished, the original offices remain and still feature the original steam coils and site services. It was therefore decided that a replacement steam boiler package was the cheapest solution for supplying domestic hot water and heating, rather than opting for a new hot water boiler, which would have required a completely new HVAC system for the offices.
The Fulton gas-fired, skid-mounted system contains two 60J boilers to ensure duty backup for planned/unplanned maintenance procedures, and features all the necessary ancillaries to integrate with Imperial Tobacco’s HVAC services.
