Trinity’s Quick Solution Gives Hospital Peace of Mind

  • Location: Victoria, British Columbia
  • Project Type: Planned Maintenance

Critical environments require extra attention to ensure electricity keeps flowing to vital equipment – in hospitals, for example, an electrical failure could become a literal life-or-death situation. That’s why hospitals require redundant equipment to pick up electrical loads instantly, should primary power systems fail. And, as a recent Trinity Power assignment for Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, BC, shows, those backup supplies are given attention equal to that of the primary connections, because hospital managers never know when backup might be needed.

Royal Jubilee faced an issue with a 4MVA transformer in its backup supply system – the equipment had tested badly and no one felt comfortable re-energizing the device. However, with the transformer down, so was the hospital’s only backup, so a temporary unit would be needed – and stat – until a permanent replacement could be ordered and put into service.

Hospital managers already had a great support in place with their electrical contractors Prime Engineering, a full-service firm with a client list that includes the Department of National Defense. Recognizing the project’s urgency, Prime immediately turned to Trinity – having worked with us before, the firm knew we would have an answer.

Our solution was to provide a unit substation for the temporary installation. This package mobile unit was on the road within a day and installed in less than a week, restoring needed redundancy and easing fears that no backup could have disastrous results. New equipment now is being manufactured, and Trinity Power’s substation remains onsite to keep Royal Jubilee’s life-saving systems up and running at a moment’s notice.
