Powering an ever-changing world
From powering our homes and hospitals to research facilities and more, the power generation industry did not stop for the pandemic. Instead, it was challenged, and it responded with change. Throughout 2021, we will see many new projects centred around electrification, digitisation and energy storage.
Bringing affordable energy to NHS hospitals
According to research from energy consultancy Energy Management LLP, NHS Trusts spend an average of half a billion pounds each year on gas and electric. Powering patient care is a costly exercise, however there are solutions that can deliver power generation in a cost-effective way. One example is combined heat and power (CHP).
Finning delivers back-up generators to healthcare provider
Finning UK & Ireland has supplied HealthNet Homecare with two back-up generators during the COVID-19 lockdown. The generators provide assurance to the healthcare provider’s patients, pharmaceutical partners and the NHS that medications have been stored in appropriate conditions, even in the event of a power cut.
Power density: considerations for hospitals
Whether it is a storm, a flood or a general blackout, hospitals must be able to sustain power. To futureproof their standby power needs, hospitals often upgrade their standby generator systems. Here Jason Harryman, UK Sales and Business Development Manager for Electric Power at Finning UK & Ireland, Exclusive Distributor of Cat generators in the UK and Ireland, has explained why a generator’s power density matters to the NHS.
