The Museum of Power near Maldon is housed in a former water pumping station and contains a collection ranging from a working Edwardian overhead machine shop to a diesel powered iron. One of the highlights is 'Marshall', a 300hp vertical tripleexpansion reciprocating steam engine made by the Lilleshall Company.

Thanks to design advice and the supply of hotwell equipment and steam traps from TLV Euro Engineering, it is now back on steam after almost 50 years.

The museum managed to secure a 30 year old steam boiler from Felixstowe Docks. This was refurbished and installed in a new plant room which, with help from TLV Euro Engineering, has all the services required to power the steam engine.

TLV supplied cast stainless steel J3S-X freefloat steam traps and brass-bodied LV13N balanced pressure thermostatic steam traps, which feature a 'fail-open' design.
