Medical Campus Central Utility Plant

Medical Campus Central Utility Plant

We help you stay healthy and robust as you grow.

Medical campuses often have multiple energy systems, including power, emergency power, chilled water, and steam. Efficient, long-term management can be challenging. As a medical campus grows, the challenge can multiply.

That’s why Affinity Energy adopts a holistic integration mentality when approaching a medical campus central utility plant. We’re experts at designing and implementing electrical power management systems (EPMS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems that monitor and track equipment in various locations. If your facilities grow, our scalable solutions expand with you.

Affinity__DSC1675_800pxWe understand how important emergency power is to a hospital environment. That’s why we develop systems that adhere to and help you comply with emergency power system accreditation requirements from The Joint Commission.

With an onboard diagnostic tool, our SCADA systems help you understand the high-level and granular status of your plant and equipment, including chiller plants, boiler plants, power systems, emergency power systems, environmental systems, and fuel systems.

Our systems help our healthcare customers quickly realize the efficiencies associated with centralized energy production by giving them the tools they need to optimize their plants.

Because we are proficient in every data communication type (fiber optic, serial, Ethernet, wireless), we are able to troubleshoot any issues with the communications path from beginning to end, no matter what type of communication cable is used.

Our customized systems help you manage condition-based maintenance, diagnose problems, and track hundreds of data points associated with chillers, boilers, generators, fuel systems, transfer switches, and electrical switchgear. For your convenience, our SCADA designs are compatible with most web browsers and mobile devices.
