El-Björn have completed projects for thousands of  clients in the UK and Northern Europe, providing tailored Climate Control, Power Generation and Power Distribution solutions. From Cooling data centres to Powering construction sites, take a look at just some of our project success stories:

Timber Framed Building

Humidity levels in Timber Framed Building.

Timber Framed Building

El-Björn were asked to consult Timber Framed Building project which had stalled on its construction. During this downtime a solution was required to reduce humidity levels within the enclosed building and maintain them at a level specific level. Ensuring a consistent humidity level of the building was integral to prevent the long-term damage that can occur to timber-built structures if impregnated with moisture, as well as a high importance in being able to monitor and react to humidity levels in real time and proving a recorded achieve of maintained humidity levels.

For this solution, we advised to use a combination of our Electric Heater Units (to circulate and heat the surrounding air) and Dehumidification Units (to draw the excess moisture out of the air and surrounding materials), all centrally controlled by our El-Björn CONNECT temporary Building Management System.

At its core, the El-Björn CONNECT Building Management System empowers users with precise control over heating systems while simultaneously monitoring and recording temperature and humidity levels. This real-time data is not just informative but instrumental in ensuring that the desired humidity levels are consistently met and maintained.

Off-SiTe Power Supply


El-Björn was called upon to provide an off-grid power supply to aid in the construction site of Greatfields School, a project based within the Ultra Low Emission Zone area of London, undertaken by Cedar M&E Ltd. and Auburn Group Ltd.

The Generator would used to provide temporary powering the project whilst the DNO (District Network Operator) carried out essential rerouting works to the existing Temporary Builders Supply (TBS). Once complete the TSB would be reconnected back to the national grid supply.

We deployed one of our state-of-the-art Stage 5 Generators to handle the task. These generators are fully compliant with the most stringent of inner-city construction regulations (to reduce the particulate matter emitted), whilst maintaining an effective and consistent power supply. The Stage 5 Generators also have the benefit of being fully monitored remotely using our online platform.

The customer also opted for El-Björn’s fuel management service allowing us to monitor the fuel level in the tank and to call in replenishment diesel tankers as and when the fuel level ran low. This service ensured a constant and reliable power supply to the customer, all managed by El-Björn in one simple package.

Data Centre Cooling


In today’s world, data centres are the backbone of many companies’ infrastructure, stock markets and even countries. With many server units running in close proximity, ensuring they are kept in a cool environment is critical for them to work at optimum level and prevent overheated, which can lead to system shutdowns or data loss.

For one of our recent clients, a critical system overheat was a looming possibility during a crucial period of software upgrades. El-Björn were consulted to provide a solution to add efficient cooling to the data centre which could be monitored and recorded remotely. We facilitated the installation of multiple Water Cooled Split Units within the data centre, deploying several of these smaller units strategically throughout the environment instead of relying on larger cooling units.

Due to the business-critical nature of the project for the client it was essential that all possibilities were accounted for to ensure the data centre was kept cool. By dispersing multiple units across the facility, we not only would ensure a more evenly distributed cool air throughout the data centre, but in the unlikely case that one of the coolers were to stop working, the others deployed units would be able to maintain the required cooling levels without interruption. This strategy not only provided a safeguarded from potential unit downtime, but also instilled a sense of confidence and reliability for our client during their software upgrade process.

In the end, our temporary cooling solution not only met but exceeded the expectations of our client.

Concrete Sealing

Concrete Sealing

Winter can pose significant challenges for construction projects, especially when it comes to sealing concrete surfaces. Recently, we encountered a situation where our client faced a time-sensitive task of sealing concrete within an underground carpark. However, the recorded ambient temperatures were plummeting below freezing, far from the recommended range of 4°C to 32°C for ideal concrete sealing conditions.

Our solution was to deploy a number of our TF 18EL EBC electric fan heaters. These efficient heaters were strategically spaced within the car park, using a combination of its powerful fan and effective heating elements to both agitate and warm the surrounding air providing a faster heating and drying solution for the client. The textile air distributor disperses warm air in 360 degrees of direction, allowing less units to be used resulting in a more energy efficient solution for the customer.

The high-performance heating and drying capabilities of the TF 18EL EBC allowed the client to proceed with the concrete sealing process despite the harsh winter conditions. This not only averted potential cost overruns but also prevented any delays in the project timeline.

This experience underscored the importance of being prepared for unexpected weather fluctuations in construction projects. With the right equipment and proactive measures, even the most adverse conditions can be overcome.

New-Build Moisture Removal


When it comes to construction work, ensuring the structure is properly dried out after being exposed to the elements is crucial before moving on to the next stages of construction. Elements like saturated blockwork and concrete floors need thorough drying before drylining or plastering can commence to prevent moisture being trapped within the structure which can cause issues or damage to the structure in the future.

El-Björn were instructed on a similar project which involving the construction of new build apartments. Initially, the client had requested the use of indirect fired heaters for the drying process, however, after our initial inspection, we proposed a more efficient solution for the client. The use of indirect fire heaters would generate further humidity in the affected areas, heating cold and damp external air and drawing more moisture into the building. Our solution was to use localised our Electric Heater Units combined with our Dehumidification Units, to effectively agitate and heat the air, releasing more moisture from surrounding surfaces, which is then collected by the dehumidification units.

This method has been proven as the most cost effective and time efficient process of drying and moisture removal from a given area, one we have implemented successfully implemented in many different construction projects.

Our Values

At El-Björn we are fully focused on our products being characterised by the greatest possible functionality, quality and safety.


Through working with comprehensive solutions we optimise the total functionality of our products. We do this through taking advantage of experiences for effective product development which gives benefits in everyday use. The functionality of every El-Björn product is checked before delivering, random testing is not an option. All products are supplied with complete documentation (for example, front drawings, single line diagrams and component lists).

We uphold reality-based design and product development. This involves, among others a meticulous search for first-class materials and components, for example, hot-dip galvanized steel, stable and UV- resistant thermoplastic and alu-zinc sheet in the centres. Only recognized component suppliers are used.

We place the highest demands on the safety of our products. Accordingly, we implement the safety testing demanded and ensure conformity to industry standards on all markets in question. In addition, all products are officially classified, e.g. with regard to ingress protection. Traceability procedures can be found in both production and purchasing.
