Repair and Maintenance of Boiler Plants.

Boiler Upgrade to Eblana Building

Dublin & Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board | Published December 5, 2016  -  Deadline December 14, 2016
The existing central LPHW system consists of a single oil fired boiler that has reached its life expectancy and is due for replacement. The boiler has a primary flue which is routed to the exterior through the plant room wall and into
a chimney where it rises to roof level. The boiler serves a one pipe LPHW heating distribution system.
The existing heating installation within the plant room is currently connected to a local time clock controller located in the plant room.
This project will entail stripping out of the current boiler system and associated local controls etc prior to installation of the new replacement boilers. These will be operated in conjunction with a new cascade system/boiler sequence controllers.
