Hospital Campus Power Hardening Study
Facility Planning
Albany Medical Center

In-depth, full campus main hospital study to identify weaknesses, risks, possible failure scenarios, and proposed solutions for the campus power distribution systems. Detailed full campus load assessments were conducted on this large regional campus with 15MW peak campus loads, 7.75MW backup diesel generation, and 5MW CHP cogeneration turbine systems presently installed on the campus. Chilled water loads were also carefully assessed throughout campus to identify the feasibility of providing full cooling capacity to patient care areas on a loss of utility power. Several concepts and budgets were developed including a new 5MW CHP Cogeneration turbine, 5MW of additional utility paralleled standby/peak shaving diesel generation, and incorporating existing owner provided 1MW cogeneration microturbines into the facility.
