Stewart’s Lane railway depot in Battersea has been providing maintenance and stabling for the South East of England’s’ rolling stock since 1862. One of its main uses today is for the maintenance of the prestigious Belmond British Pullman, sister train to the Venice Simplon Orient Express.
A Nor-Ray-Vac system was installed in the high bay and main locomotive shed at Belmond British Pullman 28 years ago and needed to b replaced.
Belmond British Pullman asked Multigas to help with the replacement of the system and two other areas previously unheated. Economy and effectiveness were key criteria specified when selecting the heating system for the rail maintenance shed.
AmbiRad’s Nor-Ray-Vac radiant tube heating system is ideally suited to this cold and inhospitable environment. The Nor-Ray-Vac system combust the fuel at the point of use enabling maximum efficiency with distribution losses and has rapid response to changed conditions. It is designed to accommodate the building constraints and required zoning for the method of working within the shed.
The flexibility of the radiant heating system meant that specific areas can be heated as required by the work patterns within the shed keeping staff warm
