Veolia Water Technologies appointed as Principal Contractor for Renal Project
To meet growing patient demands, the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh needed to increase its renal dialysis capacity. Veolia Water Technologies was appointed to refurbish the 10 year-old renal water system which supplied the 26 station maintenance unit on the first floor, six acute renal in-patient beds in the high dependency unit (HDU) on the third floor and two dialysis stations in the Transplant Unit.
Veolia Water Technologies supplied two new water treatment systems: one located in the existing third floor plant room and a second in the new basement plant room supplying the ward extension. Each system includes a range of technologies, such as softening, carbon filtration, Reverse Osmosis and Ultrafiltration..
The new systems with duplex configuration provide secure, consistent water supply and the central concentrate facility has improved health and safety, by reducing manual handling. And with the elimination of plastic carboys, the hospital’s carbon footprint has also been reduced.
