Third Wave Services
Covid-19 has put a burden on the National Health Service to cope with the massive demand for hospital beds. Third Wave Services acted swiftly to help deliver power to two temporary hospitals set up to address the pandemic. One was the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel COVID Hospital of 3,00,000 sq. ft. with a thousand including 250 ICU beds, at Indian Air Force land near Delhi airport’s domestic terminal T1. The land was readied by DRDO and the Ministry of Defence. Third Wave also ensured power to 1,80,000 sq. ft. Covid-19 hospital in Guwahati, Assam.
Ten 500 kVA transformers were used to deliver 3800 KW of uninterrupted power required for air-conditioning, general lighting, and other activities of the Guwahati hospital. To make sure these transformers were connected and ready, around 6,000 meters of cabling and assorted ancillaries were hooked up.
The scope of work at the Sardar Vallabhai Patel facility included a turnkey solution of providing upstream and downstream safe power distribution by drawing 5000 KW of power from the main electricity grid. Third Wave Services laid 2.5 Kms of HT (high voltage) cables and converted HT supply to LT (low voltage) supply using four 1500 KVA Transformers, VCB (vacuum circuit breaker), and LT panels.
Also in Delhi, the company provided main power points to ductable air-conditioning units of 17 tonnes and 11 tonnes capacity, power for all ICU beds, medical equipment, sewage treatment plants, kitchens, toilets, plug points, and general lighting. The whole grid was backed up by providing sixteen 500 KVA and eight 125 KVA gensets.
