Our Latest Projects

Wherever people gather there’s a need for heat. Heat is also required for many manufacturing processes. For our customers, their boilers and burners are business-critical systems and if they fail there are big consequences. That’s why it’s vital to keep these systems running reliably. Here are some of the organisations currently using Tubman Heating for heating system installation and maintenance.

What is an incident?

An incident is an unplanned event which:

  • Injures someone (including death)
  • Could have injured someone (near miss/near hit)
  • Damaged property
  • Could have damaged property (near miss/near hit)
  • A environmental release
  • Anything which could bring the company into disrepute

 

What is an incident report?

An incident report must provide the following information:

  • Date and time of the incident
  • Clear description of what happened
  • Supporting evidence if needed (photos of injury, environment or damage)
  • What was the outcome (scope of injury or damage to property)
  • Who has been informed
  • Any other relevant information

 

The incident report must be submitted to your manager, the Safety and Compliance Officer, the Chief Executive Officer, and the customer if on site. Serious incidents where injury or property damage required emergency services to be called or an environmental release that leaks into waterways need to be reported immediately. WorkSafe incidents must be reported as soon as possible on 0800 030 040. All other incidents to be reported by days end.

Incident reporting allows the Health, Safety and Compliance Officer to analyse and if needed investigate the event to determine the cause and what actions can be taken to reduce the risk of it happening again. Incidents reports can also be used to disclose future risks and hazards on a site. Reporting near misses and observations will keep employees, management, and customers aware and will help prevent major incidences in the future.

 

Tubman Heating Limited remain committed to providing a safe work environment and ensuring safe working practices for our employees and customers. If you have an incident or observation to report please contact our Health, Safety and Compliance Officer Kevin Prosser on 021 993 159.

Heat Source Fuel Series: Natural Gas

As one of New Zealand’s leading boiler and burner specialists, Tubman Heating Limited takes you through the various fuel types used to power your heating system. Different industries and processes will have various requirements and regulations pertaining to their specific needs.

Tubman Heating Industry Experts

Natural Gas

A heat source uses a fuel substance that is heated up, from which the heat can be extracted or absorbed. These fuels, along with your heating system, generate energy in the form of power, steam, hot air, hot water and more. Natural Gas is a fossil fuel energy source formed deep beneath earth’s surface, over millions of years and extracted either vertically or horizontally through a production well. All natural gas in New Zealand is sourced from 15 fields within the Taranaki region, both onshore and offshore. Natural gas is only transmitted and distributed across the North Island.

A heating device such as a burner requires a fuel source (Natural Gas), an ignition source and oxygen to create combustion. The gas and oxygen ratio needs to be calculated based on the consumption rate of the boiler and the expected usage of the heating system. Synthetic methane, biomethane, and hydrogen and gas blend are currently compliant with NZS 5442. Natural gas is used in the petrochemical sector, fertiliser manufacturing, steel manufacturing, wood processing and dairy plants. Commercially natural gas is used in hotels, greenhouses and in food manufacturing.

natural gas pie chart sectors

The NZ Government’s 2050 target of net-zero and low emissions aims to replace natural gas with hydrogen and existing gas pipelines will be repurposed for hydrogen and biogas, most modern boiler systems will be able to continue use with biogas options, with only a burner modification or upgrade required. While in this transition phase, natural gas remains a reliable and affordable fuel source for our customers. Natural gas use in a boiler heating system offers more precise control and monitoring capabilities, including remote access.  Compared to other fossil fuels, natural gas produces the least amount of CO2 when heated, and only half as much as coal. Clean combustion, due to no particulate emissions reduces the wear on the burner and boiler.
