Barnet Hospital, Hertfordshire
Managed by Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, Barnet Hospital was rebuilt between 1999 and 2002 and was reopened by HRH The Princess Royal in 2003.
The hospital has 445 beds and operates a full range of acute medical services including surgery, gynaecology, orthopedics and pediatrics, as well as a 24-hour A&E department.
Our client needed to move a very large external diesel generator to a new position within the hospital. In this kind of setting, uninterrupted power is absolutely critical and having extensive experience in the healthcare sector, Bells MES was perfectly placed to help.
We removed the existing generator and canopy and took it off-site to our workshop. At the same time we constructed a bespoke, mild steel bunded tray to provide spillage protection. Removal of existing canopy making the generator into an open set, full overhaul mechanically. We then took the generator back to the site and re-instated incorporating a new exhaust system. The generator was re-connected to the existing fuel tank with new pipework and the whole procedure was completed in just 28 days from commission.
