Packaged Boiler Plant Datasheet

Containerised boiler plants have traditionally been hired when an in-house boiler is out of action, or during routine maintenance, repairs, re-locations or upgrades.

While many facilities managers still consider containerised boiler plant a temporary solution, more and more companies are choosing containers as a viable option for a long-term boiler plant solution. There are some obvious benefits to this approach for your Steam, hot water and biomass boiler plant installation:

  • Complete units are manufactured off-site, reducing disruption to everyday operations.
  • Containers can be easily located, with only pipework installation to be carried out on-site
  • Where space is at a premium, containers can be located alongside production units.
  • Container plants have greater resale potential.

Our Manufacturing Process

SPECIFICATION: We survey the proposed site to wholly understand the specific steam and plant requirements, before specifying a steam or hot water boiler from leading manufacturers to comply with MCP and EU Directives.


DESIGN: The internal layout and plant configuration of the container is modelled using CAD and 3-D software. Optimising the boiler house for ease of access and management is an essential process as a poorly planned installation can affect the efficiency of routine maintenance and day-to-day operations.


ASSEMBLY: The container is first adapted to suit the project, often involving the installation of a side door access, vented panels and a reinforced floor. The electrical distribution panel is then installed to allow for LED lighting and electrical connections. The boiler, ancillary equipment and pipework is then installed. Initial commissioning takes place at our works to identify any faults or operating issues prior to on-site installation.


ON-SITE INSTALLATION: We complete on-site installations quickly and with minimum disruption. In most cases we pre-prepare all connecting pipework to again reduce time required on site. The new installation is then thoroughly tested and commissioned, with all relevant paperwork supplied.
