Keston races into action
Keston Boilers has supplied a bespoke rig to Honda Racing Development Ltd (HRD) that will provide all heating and domestic hot water (DHW) needs to its engine production facility, in Bracknell. HRD supplies the F1 racing engines that power Honda Racing and Super Aguri F1 teams.
The rig incorporates two C55 boilers, a pressurisation set and expansion vessel, and will provide heating and hot water for the three-storey office facility at HRD.
Keston won the contract for its ability to tailor products to a customer’s specific needs. In this instance, the project required a low-height rig, as space in the plant room was severely restricted, so a solution was sought that could be manoeuvred into position and connected to the system, with minimal downtime.
As a company, Honda also upholds a strong environmental ethos, so a manufacturer that could deliver a custom-built, efficient solution was key. Keston’s complete range of heating solutions carry a SEDBUK A-rating, and can save up to 30% on heating bills.
