King’s, whose Mildenhall branch is close to Cambridge, were asked to urgently provide a temporary boiler to help cover the hospital’s steam demand. The emergency unit was delivered and on line with the minimum of loss to the Hospital.

King’s involvement did not end there however. Being Europe’s largest stockist of re-conditioned boilers, Kings had an almost identical 35,000lb/hr steam boiler in stock at their Mildenhall branch. King’s Director, David King, offered the unit to Addenbrookes , who promptly decided to purchase. The boiler was fully re-furbished and delivered to the hospital six weeks later.

Engineers at Addenbrookes were delighted to have sourced an almost identical boiler locally and with such rapid delivery, and also benefit from the large financial saving over buying a new boiler unit.
