After several high-profile projects in the last quarter of 2016, Eco Ketelservice Verhuur (boiler rental service) started off 2017 in the same manner.
Besides the usual daily rental of boilers, a rental project with four 7-MWth hot water boilers, including the construction of connecting piping, was realised in January. All of this for the purpose of supplying heat to a large heating network.
In February, four 20-ton steam boilers were supplied as rentals and commissioned. AIB-Vinçotte provided the final inspection for this work. These four units, manufactured by Bosch (UL-S-IE 22000 x 23.5), are equipped with economisers, O2 regulators and speed-controlled burner motors (75 kW). This is to achieve the highest possible return or the lowest possible gas consumption.
What is involved in building, maintaining, delivering and commissioning a steam or hot water boiler?
As a field service engineer, Tim Trommelen (25), is responsible for installing boilers, carrying out on-site maintenance and resolving any faults. The wishes of the customer are taken into account as much as possible, but the installation of a boiler is also dependent on the power and water supply.
Once the boiler is level, the power and water supply can be connected, and the boiler can be filled. Then, various tests are performed and the safety and protection devices, the functioning of the burner and all the settings are checked. The pressure and temperature are adjusted to the wishes of the customer, followed by a brief instruction. Eco is available 24/7 if an unexpected fault occurs, or in the case of any questions! The total work package and the variation mean that our engineers enjoy their work very much. Steam is and will always be necessary. That is why Eco Steam and Heating has again significantly expanded its rental stock in the past year. These installations meet all legal requirements and regulations, and all applicable environmental, noise and safety requirements. All our boiler systems are built in the same uniform manner and fitted with durable, high-quality components. Are you wondering how this is done? Look here for a detailed impression.
Eco Steam and Heating has been located in its building on Hectorstraat in Tilburg since 2002. Over subsequent years, Eco has experienced good growth. Not only in the number of employees, but
also in the number of rental steam and hot water boilers. Despite anticipated growth, further expansion of the site and the office space was required.
Early 2015, the premises were expanded by 9,000 m2. This brings the total surface area now to 20,000 m2. In May 2016, the construction of an additional floor and the renovation of the existing floors were started. The work has now been completed and we welcome you!

Eco Steam and Heating has been nominated for the Dutch National Business Success Award 2016! The broadcast of the television program ‘The Successfactor’ on RTL provides insight into who we are, what we do and why we are nominated for this award!
Enercity (Germany) receives two 14 MW hot water boilers
Eco Ketelservice Verhuur bv installed last week in Hannover two hot water boilers for an Energy company. The company delivers electricity, gas, district heating and wood and water energy. The two hot water boilers from Eco Ketelservice Verhuur have an capacity of 4 MW and 10 MW and is used for district heating.
Eco Steam and Heating has extended its rental fleet file with two Bosch UL-S 16000 boilers. These installations meet all current legal rules and requirements associated with PED 97/23 CE as well as today’s environmental legislation and noise and safety requirements. Our boilers must meet the highest standards of quality and reliability. All installations are assembled in the same, uniform way and using the same sustainable and high-quality components.
Shymkent is the third largest city in Kazakhstan and is situated in the south of the country near to Uzbekistan. The new “Nursat” administrative and residential district has been established to meet the growing population of the city. This offers space for around 30,000 inhabitants over an area of 370 hectares. In winter there can be icy temperatures – the record is below -30 °C. It is therefore essential to have an absolutely reliable heating and hot water supply system. For this reason a giant new heating plant was built with five Bosch hot water boilers. They can provide the new district with up to 190 MW of heat.
Supply is provided on the basis of demand and the weather. Whether at peak load times or at low demand, the double-flame tube boilers run efficiently and with low emissions over every load range due to the large modulation range of 1:20. Thanks to Bosch control technology with sequence control, the boilers can be switched on and off individually and automatically. At least one of the boilers is generally in standby mode and can support the heating network at any time. Dual-fuel burners offer additional security. If there are supply shortages at the natural gas supplier, it is also possible to operate the system with light fuel oil.
But the project is not only impressive regarding its size, reliability and efficiency. The transport of the large boilers was also considerable: the steel giants with a transportation weight of approx. 85,000 kilos/each, travelled around 7,200 kilometres to their destination. Starting at the Bosch factory in Gunzenhausen (Germany), they travelled to the port at Roth and then onwards via the canal to Rotterdam (Netherlands), and from there to St. Petersburg (Russia). When they arrived there, the boilers were transported 4,000 kilometres by road through Russia and Kazakhstan. Due to their height of around five metres, power lines had to be temporarily dismantled. The weather conditions were also a great challenge for the experienced haulage company, Instar Logistics. Since the delivery took place during the winter months, the roads were partially covered with snow and ice. The boilers reached their destination in Shymkent safely after a total transportation time of eight weeks. They have since been installed there, and the first two have already been commissioned by Bosch customer service.
On 4, 5 and 6 October Eco Steam and Heating will again participate in the Trade show Energie & Industrie. This will take place in the Brabanthallen in Den Bosch.
The Trade show Energie is the main live B2B platform that focuses on the generation of sustainable energy and energy saving. A platform brimming with innovations, lectures, live demonstrations and valuable contacts. Within the Trade show Energie, a specific platform has been laid out: Energie & Industrie. This platform will have its own substantive programme and separate presentations on the trade show floor. Our Eco Steam and Heating stand can be found here in hall 5, location D.055.
