Renowned for introducing laparoscopic surgery to the UK, Ninewells Hospital, NHS Tayside is internationally recognised as a leading centre in developing medical genetics and robotic surgery.
Upgrading the high voltage assets at the Ninewells Hospital to state-of-the-art, super low loss and ultra low loss amorphous transformers was an opportunity that presented the hospital with multi-benefits.
Besides delivering energy and carbon savings, the hospital will increase the resilience of the hospital’s critical power network in line with the business continuity management programme.
“Research tells us that the average age of a distribution transformer in the UK is 63 years old. By replacing old high voltage transformers that are responsible for consuming large amounts of energy, the hospital is set to significantly reduce carbon emissions and energy costs.”
