CASE STUDIES

NHS SPECIFICATION GENERATOR 

AEL recently built and supplied a full NHS specification 60kva generator to Mardon House at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital.

 

This is a synchronising (with the mains electrical supply) unit. It is also equipped with a 72 hour duration base diesel fuel tank, motorised air inlet & outlet louvres & an automatic engine lubrication oil level maintainer system. The external operational noise level is 70db@1 meter.

500 KVA WIMES GENERATOR

We completed the build and installation of a WIMES specification generator for a water utilities site.

 

Built in our Devon factory to WIMES spec and then delivered, installed and commissioned on the site in Dorset by Addicott Electrics’ own engineers.

GENERATOR REPLACEMENT

We were recently asked to remove a 350 kVA generator at the RD&E Hospital in Exeter, and replaced it with a 600 kVA unit. There were a number of logistical challenges our team was able to overcome.

GENERATOR REFURBISHMENT

We recently had a request from a customer to fully refurbish a 60 kVA generator situated on a critical site in Wiltshire. Whilst carrying out preparations for painting, our engineers noted that the fuel tank bund was badly corroded. After consulting with the client, we replaced the complete fuel tank/bund assembly.

 

Work carried out included:

  • Bespoke built to suit existing space

  • Inner tank tested to PSI (air)

  • Bund visual inspection

  • Dye penetration testing of all welds providing seal of containment

  • Integral roof (fully enclosed)

  • Integral fuel fill point c/w overfill protection valve.

  • Hydrostatic fuel contents gauge

  • ¾ outlet c/w isolating valve and Y strainer

  • Fully painted

 

Upon completion, we fully re-installed the tank and disconnected our rental fuel tank, which had been in place during the refurbishment.

ST MARY'S HOSPITAL, ISLES OF SCILLY – REPLACEMENT STANDBY GENERATOR

Electricity is vital to everyone, especially Hospitals. When the electricity supply is lost power needs to be reinstated swiftly. For this reason most hospitals have a standby generator, and St Mary's Hospital is no different.

Early in 2017 SSE Contracting and Addicott Electrics were tasked with replacing the hospitals standby generator and various major electrical systems.

 

The project originated from the NHS Property Services backlog schedule and resulted largely from the difficulty in maintaining the existing aged generator. This was exacerbated by the difficulty of finding spares and resources on the island.

 

The existing unit was still operational, but its reliability could not be guaranteed, so it was scheduled for replacement to ensure the hospital could remain open in the event of a loss of power.

 

Due to remote nature of this project and the installation period clashing with the start of the island's busiest period of the year -including the World Gig Rowing Championship - exact planning was essential. All equipment - including a temporary generator - were loaded into shipping containers and transported to the hospital by Island Carriers. Equipment was then installed by SSE Contracting and Addicott Electrics engineers during a 10-day period. This included small electrical shutdowns to the hospital, all of which were planned in conjunction with the senior hospital staff.

 

The new generator and separate fuel tank have been installed as per the NHS HTM specifications, which include modern control systems which can monitored via the internet, which will notify the health trust on the mainland of any problems.

The project was made easier with the assistance of local contractors on the Island.
