The renal ward at James Paget Hospital operates 16 hours each day, and accommodates up to 18 patients at any one time for three hour sessions. To support this critical activity, James Paget needed to upgrade their existing water treatment system.
Veolia Water Technologies’s carbon analysis team assessed the carbon footprint of the existing system and compared various options for the new system. The recommended solution comprised of a Modula SXL hygienic reverse osmosis unit and a nephro SAFE heat sanitisable ultrafiltration unit.
The project has provided James Paget Hospital with a new renal water system to meet its current and planned needs, and with a reduction in carbon footprint. Veolia Water Technologies’s innovative approach allowed the ward to remain in operation in full compliance with renal standards whilst the upgrade work was carried out, and all to timescale and budget.
