CLAAS Western is a distributor of CLAAS farm machinery and has enjoyed considerable expansion in recent years. This has led to the construction of new facilities on a green field four-acre site, which include an 8,000 square feet workshop as well as a showroom and warehouse facilities.
Four Powrmatic NVx30 warm air heaters, combined with six HCF destratification fans were installed by Arnold Building Services., with the heaters fuelled by liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) supplied by Countrywide LPG.
Powrmatic was recommended by Countrywide LPG and the heaters, with a customised white finish, are installed throughout the building. The HCF fans ensure that the warm air is distributed evenly throughout the spaces for optimum energy performance.
The heating system is served by 3 x 1 tonne bulk storage vessels with a total capacity of 6,600 litres of LPG, supplied by Countrywide LPG, providing a much lower cost per kWh than gas oil or electricity.
CLAAS Western Centre Manager Steve McCahill commented:
“We are extremely pleased with the performance and installation of the Powrmatic heaters here at CLAAS. Using only two heaters in our workshop the whole space is kept warm, and more importantly our staff. We are already seeing the cost saving benefits of using Countrywide LPG which is great for the long term.”
The Workshop heating is provided by two heaters at each end of the workshop, while the showroom heating and stock room heating use one NVx in each space. This is just one of many projects of which Powrmatic & Countrywide LPG have worked together supplying the heating system and gas supply.
David Beverley of Countywide LPG said:
"As a specialist supplier of LPG we try to ensure that our customers get the best heating solution for their premises. Our positive experiences of working with Powrmatic mean that we have no hesitation in recommending their products for projects such as CLAAS Western".
