Boiler replacement and upgrade achieves significant savings of 50%


Boiler replacement and upgrade


Our client operates a pharmaceutical packaging facility, which is temperature critical – the system must be maintained with a flow temperature of 80 degrees, around the clock.

Ellesmere installed the original boiler system 20 years ago and has provided service and maintenance support ever since. However, the system was nearing the end of its life cycle and with such high gas usage, achieving optimum fuel efficiency at the facility is vital.


Ellesmere was commissioned to carry out the installation of a new system using high efficiency, fully modulating Hamworthy Wessex Modumax MK3 boilers.


  • Installation of a temporary boiler system
  • Change over from the existing boilers to the temporary system
  • Strip down and removal of the existing boilers and associated pipework from site, for recycling
  • Delivery and installation of the new boilers on site
  • Commissioning of the new boilers by Hamworthy
  • Removal of the temporary boiler system


All works were successfully completed on time and within budget, with no disruption to the facility’s packaging processes. Our client has achieved impressive savings, with a 50{0a29a62f09d5c2728afe0de6873b75e5a76c9056e07e52a34f9bccd49a40d94c} reduction in their gas usage in the 1st month. This has significantly reduced their costs and CO2 emissions. They are delighted with the savings and with facilities operating worldwide, intend to roll out a boiler replacement programme across the Group.
