City of Philadelphia - Water Department is under a Boilers Inspection Service Contract for 19 locations. Owner had previously experienced inefficiencies and poor to no maintenance. We turned the situation around to the complete satisfaction of the Owner. Now, all systems are operating at maximum efficiency.
Hurricane Floyd (1999) flooded the S.W. Plant. It was totally under water affecting the comfort system of the facility. We responded immediately and performed a complete tear down and replacement of two Cleaver Boilers. All systems are now running at maximum efficiency. We saved the Owner over 300% increase in cost by not having to do a complete replacement of boilers.
