A single wall-hung boiler and two water heaters from Hamworthy Heating serve each of six new wards at Hopewoood Park hospital at Ryhope near Sunderland.

Boiler plant in new hospitals that are part of the ‘Pride project’ for NHS Northumberland Tyne & Wear exceed the minimum efficiency required by the Energy Related Products Directive that will take effect from September 2015 and Part L of the Building Regulations 2013. The £60 million capital project consists of a new 122-bed hospital on the former Ryhope hospital site and a new 24-bed dementia care unit on the Monkwearmouth Hospital site in Sunderland.

To meet the energy-efficiency standard required for new buildings, the project manager at Crown House Technologies specified Hamworthy Heating’s Dorchester DR-FC Evo condensing water heat and Fleet condensing wall-hung boilers. These products offer gross seasonal efficiencies of up to 98% and 97%, respectively.

The new hospital, named Hopewood Park, comprises six 18-bed wards and a 14-bed psychiatric intensive-care unit. There are also offices, a café, treatment suites and a faith centre.

Each ward has its own plant room with the same equipment and layout. There is a wall-hung boiler and two water heaters in each plant room, with varying outputs depending on demand.

There is one boiler and two water heaters at Monkwearmouth Hospital.
