Hospital targets energy savings

Grundfos Pumps were delighted to play their part in helping a hospital achieve energy savings by providing the Sligo University Hospital with a detailed Energy Check report. This outlined the energy savings that were achievable by exchanging the hospital’s existing pumps with intelligent MAGNA3 and TPE3 pumps.

These pumps, now in-situ, are remotely monitored via Grundfos CIM300 BACnet cards which allow the operators to monitor and trend individual pump performance. The hospital has also taken advantage of the integrated Heat Energy Monitors available on all Grundfos MAGNA3 and TPE3 model pumps enabling them to map and build up an understanding of the main heat users throughout the hospital.

So much is written about hospital waiting times and the many pressures that the health services are under, it is very easy to overlook the fact that there are also many positive activities taking place. The fact that some of these improvements are happening, literally behind closed doors, makes it even more important to place a spotlight on them.

Despite these demands, many hospitals such as the Sligo University Hospital, a busy 359 bed, acute general hospital in the West of Ireland, have recently had their efforts to reduce energy use recognised by the SEAI when they were announced as the winners of the Sustainable Energy Public Sector Award for delivering savings of 20%.
