Entec provides a bespoke design & build service for mobile plant rooms. By “plant room” we mean an enclosed space housing a variety of plant, ranging from LV or HV electrical infrastructure, to generators, pumps, boilers or HVAC equipment.
So, why mobile? Especially if it’s envisaged that the plant installation is going to be permanent?
Entec has completed installation projects for 35 years, involving large generator packages, switchboards and control panels and all manner of ancillary plant.
We have learnt through experience that the efficiency and quality of installation work is greatly increased within a workshop environment. Site travel is reduced, site safety risks are minimised, and a manufacturing workshop is typically a cleaner, quieter and more comfortable environment than a construction site – conducive to skilled tradesmen delivering their best output in the most efficient manner.
A mobile plant room can be factory-acceptance tested at Entec’s workshop. Following transportation to its destination, the on-site installation is a simple process and the plant is ready for commissioning.

A further advantage of mobile plant rooms is that they can be readily relocated in the future. This is particularly applicable in operations such as mines, quarries and landfills, where site infrastructure is regularly reconfigured to adapt to site requirements. Mobile plant rooms are also ideal for short-term installations, such as construction projects or special events.
Enclosure styles & sizes of mobile plant rooms
Mobile plant rooms can be built to any size, provided they meet the constraints of road transport regulations. Entec’s experience includes an ISO 10 foot container at the small end (3.0m long x 2.4m wide x 2.4m high), and a double ISO 40 foot container at the upper end (12.0m long x 4.8m wide x 2.6m high).
ISO shipping containers are ideal due to their standard sizing, ease of lifting, and the cost effectiveness of international freight via container ships (subject to fitting the ISO envelope). Entec has installed additional roof assemblies onto containers to prevent accumulation of rain or dirt.
Entec can also offer mobile plant rooms using self-frame enclosures. These are available in any size, again subject to transport restrictions. The self-frame enclosure has a pitched roof and a high stud, providing more flexibility to house larger items of plant.
