We have been appointed by Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust to supply and install a new generator at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary in West Yorkshire.
The new 1500kVA generator will replace and upgrade obsolete equipment to support higher impact loads and provide scope for future load expansion in the hospital.
Kenny Berrie, Head of Technical at DTGen, said: “We have a strong track record of delivering high specification equipment to the NHS ensuring a seamless transition between old and new systems, and look forward to working with the team at the hospital to ensure the emergency standby power supply is up and running within two weeks.”
We are undertaking the entire project including removal of the existing generator from the plantroom, which means removing the attenuated plantroom discharge wall to facilitate the replacement, and installing a new acoustic wall to meet the new acoustic and airflow requirements. Once in position, the new generator will be connected to the hospital switchboards and synchronising controllers which are compatible with the DSE 8610 controller on the new set.
The generator supports critical operational areas within the hospital and so to facilitate the replacement, DTGen will provide temporary standby power to ensure full back up support to these critical loads throughout the installation process.
Huddersfield Royal Infirmary first opened its doors in 1965 and has since invested millions to modernise and extend the site. The hospital offers a full range of day care, outpatient services and an accident and emergency department. It is also the specialist centre for emergency surgery and planned complex surgery.
