Andrews Chiller Hire ensure operating theatres remain undisrupted

A hospital in South Wales encountered a chiller failure that if not fixed quickly, could have proved detrimental to the hospital’s services. The Andrews Chiller team arrived on the scene within 4 hours of the call to provide an emergency out of hour’s service so that operations and emergency services were not postponed.  After a specialist engineer prepared the connection points in the building a 200kW fluid chiller was delivered and located in the car park at ground level.

The 200kW temporary fluid chiller can be used for a multitude of applications and is quiet in operation, which was perfect for designated location in the hospital car park. Installation was carried out during the evening when the hospital car park was empty. This caused minimal disruption to the hospital services and patients. As the existing chiller was located in the roof space, this made the application complex, however the Andrews experts came to an efficient and cost effective solution quickly. The hospital was very grateful for the fast response time we provided as disruption was kept to a minimal and emergency services such as operating theatres were kept running as usual.
