The N.V. Sklifosovsky hospital has been serving the Poltava region in Ukraine for more than 200 years. Having expanded a lot over this time, the hospital currently has more than 779 beds. This medical institution specialises in highly skilled inpatient and outpatient consultative procedures. The hospital is also a training base for the doctors and nurses of the future.
As with most hospitals, it’s powered by two independent electrical circuits from the mains supply. In a hospital power is absolutely critical. If power is lost there is a significant threat to the health, and ultimately life of patients, as all electrical equipment will cease to function. Patients at this time could be in the intensive care unit or on an operating table.
The hospital management, like most applications where power is critical, decided to install diesel generators for emergency power. These would immediately kick-in if mains power is lost. To start the process, they conducted an audit of what was needed. During the audit, engineers identified the need to replace the power distribution panels in addition to the installation of the generators, as the existing shields were in poor condition.
Thanks to the fact that the QIS range allows you to specify the configuration of your generator, through a wide range of useful options, the hospital received a package that was perfect for them. You can customise everything from the power output to the options you require.
