2020 was a year unlike any other but, despite the restrictions, we kept busy in the workshop and were pleased to be able to undertake essential works around the UK for public sector clients such as the NHS. In this blog post, we take a look at some of the industrial and heritage boiler work completed in 2020.
This video demonstrates the design, build and installation of a containerised steam boiler plant. The design process involved CAD 3D modelling to optimise the floor space. The container was then converted to include electrics, ventilation and a robust steel floor. The plant installation was done in stages, with the hotwell tank, blowdown vessel and steam distribution header sited prior to positioning the Byworth steam boiler and the installation of all connecting pipework.
The whole unit was steam tested and given a final coat of paint before being loaded onto a transport and sent to Cornwall for final siting and commissioning. The majority of our works carried out prior to despatch allowed for a very streamlined operation on-site, keeping disruption at the factory at an absolute minimum.

It's been another incredibly busy and diverse year of work here at H.A. McEwens. Expanding our team and moving into a new workshop has meant improved productivity and enhanced capabilities, such as our ability to 3-D model equipment layouts and undertake complete boiler plant redesign projects. As legislation on emissions gets ever tighter this aspect of work is becoming ever more important, as it not only allows us to optimise installations at the design stage, it also reduces our own carbon footprint by reducing the time needed on site.
We have continued to invest in our staff, welcoming new members to our team in 2019 who have brought a variety of skills to the business.
New recruits include our in house CAD design specialist Ashley Roberts (pictured) who has a brilliant work ethic and a fantastic skillset. Recently, we have also brought on board Amanda Linden who has a wealth of office experience, and who is already making a huge difference.
We work throughout the UK and Ireland, carrying out industrial boiler and heritage steam boiler engineering contracts across a wide range of industries, including:
Breweries | Distilleries | Hospitals | The Food Industry | Chemical Plants | Textile Mills | Paper Industries | Government Facilities
