Watkins Hire Ltd protects hospital patients from excessive temperatures
Watkins Hire Ltd protects hospital patients from excessive temperatures.
When a hospital required urgent cooling to their wards and theatres they made a call to Watkins Hire Ltd. Using 0800 999 6 365 the hospitals Mechanical and Electrical Estates Officer spoke to one of our Temperature Control Rental Solutions Specialists who discussed their application, understood the urgency of their requirement and made an appointment for a site survey later that afternoon.
The hospital worked off an onsite geothermal system providing heating from the ground heat source and cooling from the water of the lake on site. However, this system failed due to the onsite pipe work leaking. Temporary air conditioning was required immediately to all areas of the hospital.
The National Health Service is a valued client of Watkins Hires, and they contact us with specialist temperature control requirements due to the peace of mind our service and hire products offer, alongside the reassurance given with our quick response.
Following the prompt site survey, Watkins Hire arranged for 1 x 750kW Chiller, 1 x 500kW Chiller, 1 x 250kW Chiller and Power Package including 2 x 1260 kva Generators to promptly be on site.
A site specific method statement and risk assessment was issued to ensure that all areas regarding delivery, installation and commissioning were clear and agreed. This allowed the chiller units to be quickly set up alongside the power package to ensure minimal downtime.
The temporary cooling solution was a success and the hospital was impressed with Watkins Hires professional and timely service.
Watkins Hire offers a range of Chillers suitable for all applications.
