Total expertise in steam for hospitals — five companies have teamed up to form the Steam Alliance to cover the use of steam for hot water, sterilising and heating.
Five companies have teamed up to form the Steam Alliance — a one-stop shop for the complete range of steam systems for the NHS hospital-building programme. Spirax Sarco is a leading company in the application of steam. Armstrong Integrated Systems is a specialist in packaged plantrooms and offsite construction. CTH is an approved systems integrator for Trend Control Systems. Feedwater is a specialist in water treatment. Alfa Laval is a leading company in heat transfer. The combined expertise of these companies enables them to offer an integrated approach to providing steam for major NHS projects. They can tackle every aspect of a hospital’s steam system to provide hot water, space heating and sterilisation — from the control of water quality to clean steam generation. Modular construction and off-site testing of equipment enables quality and performance to be guaranteed. The alliance has been set up to meet the needs of NHS clients working within the ProCure 21 procurement process, which is designed to deliver capital projects worth over £1 million. It encourages NHS clients to work in partnership with a pared-down selection of suppliers and contractors.
