Electrical calculation for hospitals industry
Health facilities must meet very specific electrical safety constraints. The operating services / Maintenance departments are responsible for the management of large assets which generally include complex and numerous electrical installations, HV / LV sub-stations, generators, inverters,…
The quality and safety criteria here are of paramount importance. Electrical managers and sub-contractor service men who verify newly commissioned works in hospitals are required to take into account both respecting the regulations and operations of facility in the long term. They are also asked to renew electrical installations in buildings as well as to provide detailed documentation during periodic inspections.
Management of emergency medical centers requires continuity of service made possible by the obligation of electrical installations to have total selectivity.
