The existing Basingstoke Fire Station building dating back to 1966 has made way for the construction of a new £6m ultra-modern facility. The new station provides modern living quarters, a training tower and smoke training building. To maintain continuity of service during construction the existing training facilities were converted into the fire-fighters temporary home.

Part of the new services package carried out by mechanical contractor J & B Hopkins Ltd was the installation of an indirect Extreme 300 litre HWS ‘loading cylinder’. The Extreme is designed to maximise condensing boiler efficiency by operating at a Δt of 30°C (80/50°C) via its integral stainless steel plate heat exchanger. Capable of producing in excess of 2300 l/hr at 60°C the unvented cylinder comfortably accommodates the stations peak hot water demand in the changing rooms and kitchen area.

The Extreme was supplied c/w an unvented kit and a factory fitted single phase 3kW immersion heater.
