The highly complicated effort to design, build and construct two hospitals in short order required consistent quality power. Eaton mobilized its emergency response teams in China to help.
An urgent request came to Eaton from the regional utility, Wuhan Power Supply Bureau. Both Huoshenshan and Leishenshan Hospitals needed help connecting to utility power. In a matter of days, Eaton and its partner helped connect the main power supply at both hospitals and provided the medium-voltage cable accessories supporting intelligent and reliable power distribution.
Eaton and its local partner, Wuhan Chaote Network Technology Co., Ltd, worked overnight to install, deploy and start up power at the Huoshenshan Hospital. Eaton also provided three units of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and 112 sets of batteries. This equipment is enabling healthcare digitalization, the equipment analyzing blood tests and monitoring patients, as well as supporting emergency backup.
Inside of 24 hours’ notice, Eaton delivered the circuit protection supporting critical CT equipment onsite at the Huoshenshan Hospital. This diagnostic equipment is critical to rapid response and treatment of symptoms. Eaton power management solutions are protecting these sophisticated diagnostic imaging machines from downtime and enabling reliable, efficient power.
