Deliver critical power in limited space for hospital 

The University Hospital in St Etienne required a complete overhaul of their high-voltage systems.

Unfortunately, that meant they also needed an external source of power while this work was carried out.

Having no power in a  hospital is simply not an option, but with space around the hospital site limited, the external power solution needed to be mobile and dynamic enough to fit around the limited space, as well as reliable.

It comprised 30 generators, totalling 21 MVA. The key to making this work? 

Our technicians on site,12km of cabling and our proprietary Aggreko Remote Monitoring
