Hounsfield supports training with boiler donation

Oil boiler specialist Hounsfield Boilers, has donated a 12/19 Kitchen Model to a leading electrical, oil and water training centre in East Anglia.

Norwich Gas, Electrical and Oil, known as NGEO, has been training and assessing heating professionals and apprentices since 2000. The company is the hub for OFTEC’s ‘Competent Person Scheme’ and ‘Experienced Worker’ training and assessment and has around 500 students pass through its doors every year.

Keen to support industry, Hounsfield Boilers were happy to help NGEO in the training process and encourage those who wanted to work with oil.The Hounsfield boiler will be used to enable students to practise carrying out a full service. The trainees have to problem solve the issue and dismantle the boiler and reassemble it. The burner is removed and serviced whilst students also have to appraise the boiler to see if it has been installed correctly and if the flue position is correct.

Chris Bealey, Director of NGEO says: “We need a wide variety of boilers to train students on, as they will come across many different makes and models in their work life. “

Andrew Hounsfield, managing director of Hounsfield Boilers (pictured), says: “It is an honour to help those just starting out in their careers and NGEO offers a great nurturing environment to learn.”
