Design, Installation and Commissioning of a Standby Power Station for a hospital in Accra, Ghana
The customer was struggling to maintain a continuous and sufficient power supply to a large hospital. They required a soundproof standby power supply of 5000kVA (4MW) to fully operate the hospital in the event of mains failure.
Our customer contracted BES Group to design and install both the standby power system and the soundproof building.
BES Group designed and installed an acoustic soundproof building to house the standby power supply system. The hospital environment meant noise pollution had to be kept to a minimum.
BES Group designed and installed the power supply using 2 x 2500 kVA Paxman VP185 11kV generators. BES Group also designed suitable switchgear and the operating system including auto mains failure. Fuel storage tanks were also supplied and installed.
BES Group delivered a solution fully tailored to meet the client’s standby power generation and noise pollution requirements. Our expertise also provided the client with a seamlessly managed installation and commissioning of all equipment. All client staff were fully trained prior to the official hand-over.
