6MVA Diesel Generator Installation at Northwick Park Hospital
Two 3MVA Kohler-SDMO prime rated generators installed on-site
Both enclosures were designed to meet a sound level not exceeding 65dBA @ 1m.
FUEL MANAGEMENT SOLUTION
The generators were linked with an 8 hour capacity local day tank adjacent to the container with the fuel supply connected directly to the hospital’s bulk fuel system.
Northwick Park Hospital is a major general hospital in Harrow, Greater London, managed by the London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust. It falls within the boundaries of the borough of London Borough of Brent, in its extreme north-western corner.
An extensive project, the scope included the installation of two high capacity generating sets, housed in bespoke sound reduced enclosures. This scope of works also included system design, factory testing carried out at our testing facility, delivery off load, positioning and finally, commissioning.WB Power were the principal contractor on the project, managing all aspects from start to finish.
Due to the layout of the existing Hospital building and surrounding grounds, access to the generator was limited. Furthermore, there were several technical requirements within the hospitals which WB needed to fulfill in order to meet the specification. The first of these was that the new generator control system was to be designed to fully integrate with the hospital’s pre-existing building management system. The second was any solution designed should meet a sound level not exceeding 65dBA @ 1m.
SOLUTION & RESULT
WB Power Services project managed the delivery, installation and commissioning of two 3000kVA 11kV prime rated generating sets. Each housed in bespoke sound reduced enclosures, manufactured to the consultants exacting standards, with the total package fully meeting the requirement of HTM-06.
Both enclosures were designed to meet a sound level not exceeding 65dBA @ 1m. The generators were linked with an 8 hour capacity local day tank adjacent to the container with the fuel supply connected directly to the hospital’s bulk fuel system.
The advanced Kohler / SDMO AMP802 generator control system was designed to fully integrate with the hospital’s building management system (BMS) to provide a comprehensive generator monitoring and duel redundant control of the HV distribution.
