Howden recently secured a new order to extend an existing service contract for the maintenance of a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) unit at Peterborough City Hospital.

The CHP system is equipped with 24/7 condition monitoring to ensure optimum performance and maximum financial benefit to the customer. In the event of a critical alarm, a remote diagnostic response will be carried out within 1 hour and if necessary, an engineer will be on-site within 4 hours.

Our comprehensive maintenance contract provides full service for both scheduled and unscheduled outages. All necessary engineering and consumable spare parts are included, and the operating and reporting process ensures minimum cost for all maintenance activities.

Howden was awarded the 3-year extended service contract. Many of our engineers have over 20 years of expertise in CHP systems, providing around the clock support, they are dedicated to solving customers’ problems and reducing downtime.
