Emergency power for new health facilities in Aberdeen

UK power generation specialist, DTGen, has been appointed to supply and install the emergency power solution for the new £244.8 m development of The Baird Family Hospital and ANCHOR Centre for NHS Grampian at the Foresterhill Health Campus in Aberdeen.

At The Baird Family Hospital, three 1100 kVA synchronised generators, 16,000 litre structural base tanks, and supporting infrastructure, will be installed at the site, which replaces the existing Aberdeen Maternity Hospital, and encompasses a number of additional services, including breast screening, breast surgery, and gynaecology services.

The purpose-built ANCHOR Centre will provide new accommodation for oncology and haematology outpatient and day patient services to be co-located, and will be supported by a 500 kVA generator and structural base tank with 12,000 litre fuel storage.

Once complete, The Baird Family Hospital will be around 26,000 m² in size, with over 1,000 rooms, and have physical links into Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital to allow easy patient transfer. The ANCHOR Centre is scheduled to open in 2023, followed by The Baird Family Hospital which in 2024.

Donnie Macdonald, head of Projects at DTGen, said: “Our experience in delivering emergency power solutions for the health sector spans five decades, so we have a strong track record of delivering high-specification equipment to the NHS, ensuring a seamless transition between old and new systems. We’re proud to be supporting the delivery of these two new state-of-the-art facilities.”
