To undertake the boiler and hot water generation plant and controls system replacement, to improve system resilience within the live private hospital in Hythe, Kent; and installation of a new air handling unit (AHU) plant, to improve the clinical functions.

Our Role

Working with CFES Ltd, the main contractor, EDP Environmental provided MEP Design Services for the system upgrade and replacement. Very limited access influenced the design significantly.

The boilers selected were of the prefabricated frame mounted type, with high efficiency condensing modular boilers providing significantly greater energy efficiencies. Plate heat exchangers replaced the old calorifiers, mitigating the risk of legionella.

The installation of new BMS controls provides vastly improved plant monitoring and control functions enhancing the overall system efficiencies, whilst improved alarm functions reduces the “downtime” of the essential hot water and heating systems within this live hospital environment.
