Hamworthy boosts heating efficiency for Dorset County Council
Boilers serving two buildings from one boiler house in Christchurch have been replaced have been replaced with two pairs of Hamworthy Heating’s LT90 steel boilers to meet the different demands. One of the buildings is occupied by Dorset County Council’s adult-education service and the other by Dorset Police Authority, acting as Christchurch Police Station. Each occupant placed different demands on the shared heating system, so Dorset County Council decided to provide two separate boiler systems, while replacing the existing and increasingly inefficient boilers.
Working to detailed plans by local building-services consultant Mabey Francis, Watertite Heating of Yeovil installed the four oil-fired boilers to serve two separate heating systems from the one boiler house.
Malcolm Hunt, senior engineer with Mabey Francis, explained. ‘The need to have greater control over heating systems is essential to ensure maximum efficiencies. It was therefore beneficial for Dorset County Council to split the heating system to allow both the adult-education service and police authority responsibility for their own heating requirements.’
