A contract to supply critical care power systems and hygienic touch-screen theatre control panels, with PACS viewing screens, has been awaded to Bender UK as part of a project for the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital (pictured).
The electrical safety specialist is working on a project to deliver and install equipment in 18 operating theatres. The landmark £335m redevelopment of the hospital will create the largest all single patient room hospital in England when it is completed in 2017. It is part of the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.
Carillion is the main contractor for construction of the new hospital and awarded the contract to Bender UK for isolated power systems and uninterruptible power systems with the touch screen control systems.
Bender UK is also working with Crown House Technologies, which is managing the installation and commissioning of mechanical and electrical services at the new hospital, to deliver advanced power protection and to also provide sufficient capacity to ‘future proof’ the hospital for the anticipated expansion of power requirements.
The new 12-storey hospital, alongside the existing building on Prescot Street, will contain 646 beds, individual en-suite rooms, spread across 23 wards, a 40-bed critical care unit and 18 operating theatres.
Once the project is completed, the service and technical support team at Bender UK will provide annual maintenance, 24/7 technical support and a rapid response call out service 365 days of the year to ensure the continuous supply of power to the critical care areas.
