Boilers take the high road
28 May 2013
King’s Boiler Hire was contacted in December 2012 by SSE (Scottish & Southern Energy) who had been trying to source a large, high pressure steam boiler with a superheater for its Peterhead Power Station in Scotland.
Kings had two 15,875kg/h units available and SSE promptly placed an order for one unit on a 12-month hire. After an eight week total refurbishment, the unit was ready to be transported the 541 miles from King’s Mildenhall workshops to Peterhead.
After a three day escorted journey to Peterhead, the 52t boiler unit arrived on site ready for installation into the power station’s boiler house.
David King comments: "We are delighted that King’s Boiler Hire was able to assist SSE with its requirements and are proud to have developed an excellent working relationship with the SSE team,"
