Recently, we at Schmidhauser Electrical were tasked with a multi million rand turnkey project at Cape Town’s Groote Schuur hospital. The project, currently underway, is for the installation of a new linear accelerator bunker suite, which will eventually be used to house a Linac machine which is used for the treatment of cancer patients. To accommodate this new machine an upgrade to the existing electrical supply was required.
A project that has presented some challenges, we have managed to stay on top and are still standing. The scope of the work involved, but isn’t limited to; both MV and LV installation work. The MV scope entails the installation of 2 x new 800kVA transformers, 1 x new ring main unit and new MV cables for the ring main; while the LV installation comprises of new main and sub-distribution boards, LV reticulation, power and lighting.
Always one to go the extra mile, Schmidhauser electricians were on hand to take delivery of the transformers on a Saturday.
