Boilers Ship Fast-Track for Emergency Need


Sometimes boilers are rented in advance for planned maintenance or additional capacity, and other times they are needed immediately in an emergency outage. No matter the situation, Nationwide Boiler has the capacity to provide equipment to support our customers at their best and at their worst.

We received a call on Sunday afternoon from a customer in an emergency situation, with an immediate need for rental equipment. Our Rental Sales Manager, Tim McBride, quickly sent information on two (2) 70,000 lb/hr trailer-mounted boilers that were available from our heaquarters in Fremont, CA. The order was received Monday morning, and we began working diligently to process paperwork, perform outbound equipment inspections, and coordinate shipment. The two units shipped this afternoon, just three days after the initial call, and are on their way to the South. With the help of our partner, ADCO Companies, the equipment will be up and running in no time!

We plan ahead for situations just like this, so we can support our customers through any unexpected outage and provide them with reliable equipment and un-matched service.

Nationwide Boiler Travels: WRBA Conference and IDEA Annual Campus Energy


Nationwide Boiler and Pacific Combustion Engineering have representatives at two tradeshows this week on opposite sides of the country. 

We have Nationwide Boiler's Tim McBride and Pacific Combustion Engineering's Mike Dorthalina in Renton, WA joining boiler owners and vendors at the Western Regional Boiler Association (WRBA) Conference. This conference invites power boiler owners and operators from the West Coast and Canada to gather in one location and network with others in the industry, attend education presentations discussing a wide range of topics, and learn about the newest products to market.

In Baltimore, MD, we have Jim Barbeau and Jaime Cubillos representing Nationwide Boiler at the IDEA Annual Campus Energy Show. This event includes 72 presentations, 100 exhibitors, and 800+ attendees that come together to discuss the latest trends in the district heating realm. Their motto and goal this year is "Sharing Solutions, Sustaining Our Future". 

These are two exciting and valuable events that we have come to know very well, and we exhibit at these shows every year. Be sure to visit the Nationwide Boiler table if you will be in attendance at either show; #44 at WRBA and #19 at IDEA. We hope to see you there!
