Coal fired primary school converted using Stokvis Heatpak
22 Nov 2010
A Stokvis Energy Systems pre-assembled plant room packages has been installed at a Welsh primary school to take the place of outdated and extremely inefficient coal fired boilers.
The Heatpak unit for Llandybie County Primary School in Carmarthenshire contains a pair of Stokvis 200 kW Rex dual fuel boilers, currently running on gas, but able to burn oil. The compact boiler room also contains a pressurisation set, an Econoplate plate heat exchanger and a buffer vessel.
Craned into position on a concrete base as a single unit, the Heatpak was specified by the mechanical and electrical consultancy for the project, Vitec Webber Lenihan Ltd, based in Bridgend. J W & E Morris and Sons Limited was the M&E contractor for the project to whom Stokvis Heat Systems worked as a specialist sub-contractor/package contractor.
The decision to utilise the Heatpak in preference to the lengthy process of refurbishing and fitting out the existing facility not only created a single point of responsibility for the construction and commissioning of the complex plant room, but saved many weeks of work on site.
David Edwards, the Contracts Manager for J W & E Morris and Sons Limited, comments: “We undertake a lot of projects for councils and education authorities across Wales and we have utilised the Heatpak pre-packaged boiler plants several times in the past.
“Basically they are well suited to the requirements in Carmarthenshire where a lot of the schools are in remote outlying areas. Purchasing a Heatpak offers the flexibility that it is possible to relocate and reuse the boiler room if two or more old schools are consolidated onto a new site.”
