Some specialist operators are prone to buying technical equipment from industrial and other large buildings. During a demolition project, it is therefore helpful to study the recovery processes for large installations like heat pumps, emergency generators or compressors.
All of these pieces of equipment have the advantage of being fitted with a data plate, enabling easy identification of the model and its main technical characteristics. In some cases, these installations have a logbook containing useful information about their maintenance. They are even under a maintenance contract sometimes. It is then possible to transfer this contract at the same time as the machine itself.
Although there are not many such items on the reuse market, some operators offer smaller technical equipment for sale, such as electrical switchboards, fire hoses and air-conditioning units. These elements can be useful and cheap for new projects.
The reuse of technical installations (on extraction or implementation) is often possible for the following elements:
Emergency diesel generators
Some companies offer the refurbishing of industrial equipment such as emergency generators and heat pumps.
