Power Electrics' Annual Sustainability Report

Royal Bournemouth Hospital

Power Electrics is a proud generator solutions provider to the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, a member of the University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust. Their existing generators – 2000kVA, 730kVA & 760kVA sets required a complete turn-key solution for the supply and installation of a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) Abatement system.

The Challenge

Power Electrics needed to work alongside the NHS Trust to ensure that the SCR Abatement Systems were properly supplied and installed onto existing generators to allow them to meet the Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD), Environmental Legislation for the operation of Standby Diesel Generators.

Unfortunately, the existing infrastructure on the three generators was not designed to house an SCR System. This meant major modifications would have to take place on all three generators if they were to meet any legislative requirements. The generator experts at Power Electrics would need to identify, supply and install all the equipment necessary for the generators to meet the major NHS trust's new requirements.

An additional challenge was the three generators all had individual specific requirements for the NOx reduction. Something Power Electrics had to take into account when considering materials to be supplied.

The Solution

Our team of generator experts was able to identify exactly what the generators required to meet MCPD. To meet this environmental legislation, the team were required to supply and install the following pieces of equipment:

  • Roof, Plantroom & Exhaust Mounted SCR Units
  • Bespoke Fabrication to enable Installation
  • Closed-Loop Control & Monitoring System
  • AdBlue Tank and Pipework
"Our team did a great job in helping this NHS trust to meet environmental legislations for its generators. Power Electrics will also continue to monitor and maintain these generators to ensure they can be relied upon by the hospital."
Mark Palmer, Senior Project Manager.

With our experts on site, the modifications went according to plan and all three generators fit the requirements of the environmental legislation for the operation of Standby Diesel Generators. The SCR solution will be able to reduce the NHS trust’s generator emissions and allow them to meet legislations.
