System Overview

Muckamore Hospital is part of the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust. It provides in-patient assessment and treatment facilities for people with severe learning disabilities and mental health needs. Muckamore Hospital has 10No. buildings and we were involved in the design and installation of a Central Energy Centre and LTHW heating network that would connect the hospital buildings.

We were employed to carry out the design, supply, installation and commissioning of a fully modulated CHP system. These works included 1No. Viessman EM70 CHP unit and 2No. 1000kW ICI Caldia Boilers and modification to the existing electrical distribution board on-site. The remote access facility through the BMS system enables our engineers to monitor the ongoing operation of the complete system which in turn helped us to streamline the control strategy to maximise the potential of the Gas CHP boiler.

On contract completion, we carried out a client demonstration and training to the authorised personnel at the hospital on the daily running and maintenance of the installed plant. We now provide a 24hr/ 365 days per year direct link to advise or provide technical assistance immediately via telephone call to discuss any standard boiler procedure or faults which may occur and provide a full maintenance service for the new heating system.
