Hamworthy is a winner at Cheltenham racecourse

Hamworthy Heating, boiler, space heating

When the plant room at Cheltenham racecourse needed upgrading, local contractor Mechanical Installation Heating Services (MIH) called in Hamworthy Heating and its area sales manager to help evaluate the current system and propose a solution. The main grandstand accommodates some 6800 people in bars, restaurants and private boxes. The old, inefficient blown-gas boilers were coming to the end of their operational life.

MIH installed six Wessex ModuMax 250 kW gas-fired condensing boilers. They provide space heating and are the primary heat source for a Powerstock PS300 calorifier and two 2000 l hot-water cylinders. The Modumax boilers are stacked three high to fit the available space.

The boilers were commissioned by a Hamworthy-approved service engineer.
