New Plymouth District Council needed their two corroded and failing boilers heating a large indoor pool removed and replaced with three high- efficiency condensing boilers. We undertook preliminary works to determine the location of the pipework and boilers. Due to the requirement that the down time for pool heating was minimized, we devised a plan to structure the replacement so pool heating down time was just 1 day and pool temperature fluctuations were minimized.

We organised the pre-fabrication for all pipework, seperator, and gas mains; installed the flues and boilers leaving just the final change over of the system to be done on the day of closure. Although access was difficult and the work area was congested, we proved the saying “a job well planned is a job half done.” The final result was outstanding and some great energy savings have come out as a result of the highly efficient and reliable boilers, with a package designed to get the optimum out of them.
