St. George's Hospital: Case Study
St George’s University Hospital's NHS Foundation Trust serves a population of 1.3 million across southwest London and is one of the largest Trusts in the UK.
Incoming Water bills equate to a significant cost of running major hospitals. Historically, St George's had access to an excellent source of water from a borehole sited deep beneath the hospital.
The control equipment in place was deemed dated by their latest borehole risk assessment, leading to a reliance on mains supply which caused water bills in excess of £35,000 per month.
Clearwater designed, installed and commissioned a new bespoke chemical treatment plant, control system and temperature controlled plant room.
We also provided full, future proof system integration, remote access, data logging and alarm systems, to provide total confidence in potable water disinfection.
Results for St. George's
The result was a saving of £420,000 per annum for the hospital. The local senior Public Health officer said:
"I’m satisfied that sufficient controls and procedures are in place for the trust to go back on to the borehole without compromising the health of the hospital populations. Clearwater has demonstrated to me that they will go above and beyond what is normally expected."
Another happy customer!
