Queen’s Building Bristol

Essential electrical supplies installed into basement of Central Bristol Hospital.

Design Considerations:

  • Replacement of 2 x 800 kVA oil filled transformers with 2 x 1,600 kVA air cool transformer
  • New LV switchboard and package substation Assembly
  • Re-cabling of all existing supplies with back up supply for essential medical services
  • Installation constraints due to intensive care units and critical life support requirements
  • Services such as X-rays kept to be available at all times
  • Stringent NHS regulations to be complied with.
  • Design and selection of stand-by generator back-up
