Papworth Hospital has an excellent international reputation. Today it is the UK’s largest specialist cardiothoracic hospital as well as being the country’s main heart and lung transplant centre. To its 100,000+ in- and out-patients each year, it is often their main hope for getting the best treatment to facilitate them in leading as normal a life as possible. Supporting these ambitions are 1,800 staff, five operating theatres, a dozen wards and a range of specialist suites and units.
With such a weighty responsibility on the shoulders of a complex facility, it is not surprising that every aspect of its performance must meet the highest levels and attain the best energy standards. This is also true for the myriad of Grundfos pumps that operate in the recently updated and much improved energy centre, whose role it is to maintain the ideal ambient temperature – winter and summer, deliver water at the required temperature and ensure there is sufficient water to meet the demands whilst maintaining the pressure in the system.
The options that have been selected to fulfil all these roles are from the wide range of various energy efficient Grundfos pumps and they will ensure that all the various functions they support will continue to deliver optimal performance 24/7. The ability to successfully deliver complex solutions is something that both Papworth and Grundfos strive to attain.
