The new Center, built on 120,000 square meters of land made available by the Ugandan government, is the second structure built by ANME, the African Network of Medical Excellence, a health network favored by EMERGENGY and created in 2009 to develop free health systems of excellence on the African continent.
This project saw the participation of Riello UPS alongside architects from Studio TAMassociati and the EMERGENCY technical office. It was designed and engineered by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano.
The Pediatric Surgery Center of Entebbe (Uganda) represents a virtuous model for the entire African continent: it operates according to the EMERGENCY healthcare model based on the principles of Equality, Quality and Social Responsibility (EQS) and the guarantee of free high-level pediatric care.
In such a structure it is of vital importance that the systems, diagnostic machinery and especially the operating rooms do not suffer interruptions in operations or damage due to poor quality of electricity.
For this reason Riello UPS participated with great enthusiasm in the project and donated a number of UPSs to protect the most strategic areas of the building: the operating theaters were equipped with 2 60 kVA Multi Sentry MSTs installed in parallel with an autonomy of 60 minutes; the analysis laboratories and related computer systems were protected with a 125 kVA Multi Sentry MST; the diagnostic tool (TAC) can count on an 80 kVA Multi Sentry MST; the medical gas distribution systems are protected by an 80 kVA Master MPS (MPT); and finally the CED operates in total safety protected by a 20 kVA Multi Sentry MST.
The Riello UPS Multi Sentry MSTs achieve an efficiency of up to 96%, saving 35% of the energy dissipated in a year and providing up to 15% more active power than similar UPS available on the market.
The Master MPS guarantees maximum protection and power quality for any type of load, making it easier and more efficient to supply power from generators and MV / LV transformers - reducing losses in the system - all with an extremely compact footprint. It is ideal for space-restricted locations such as those typical in medical environments.
Thanks to its state-of-the-art products Riello UPS guarantees maximum protection of the powered equipment, no impact on the power supply line and energy savings. Elements perfectly in tune with the new project’s philosophy.
