The first boiler hire company to offer HVO fuel on all packaged boilers

  • 30 Oct 2019

Ideal Heat Solutions is now offering HVO diesel across its full packaged boiler range, having previously offered the choice of Oil and Gas as a fuel option.

Since 2010, Ideal Heat Solutions has been providing temporary heating and cooling solutions to commercial customers across the UK. Existing customers include Vital Energi, Skanska, Mitie, Kier and Bellway.

To the company’s knowledge, it is the first boiler hire company in the UK to use HVO on a commissioned temporary boiler.

The first clients of Ideal Heat Solutions to use HVO on a temporary boiler were Logistical Building Services (LBS) and Barratt London. Ideal Heat Solutions were appointed by LBS to deliver and commission a 1.2MW packaged boiler at Barratt London’s sustainable development project in New Mill Court, Greater London. You can view the full case study here.

What is HVO?

HVO, which stands for Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil, is a sustainable, renewable diesel. It’s different from other biodiesels as it uses hydrogen as the catalyst during production.

HVO is widely acknowledged as being superior to other biodiesels, delivering an efficient, cleaner performance. Ideal Heat Solutions engineers actually conducted a test to compare the performance of regular diesel oil and HVO diesel. The results were really impressive and can be found in an Ideal Heat Solutions blog post, here.

Therefore, this means that existing or new clients that have renewable energy obligations now have a renewable energy option to choose from. Not only is HVO diesel better for the environment, it’s also more energy-efficient too!
