Green light for the new Emergency Hospital in the Autonomous Community of Madrid
Construction begins on the Isabel Zendal Emergency Hospital in Madrid. Located in the Valdebebas district, it will be the largest health centre in Spain for major emergencies, research and training, for the treatment of COVID-19 and it will be equipped to become a new benchmark centre for contagious diseases.
The installation will have the latest technologies, in electrical switchgear as well as in its accessories in the communications and integrated control section of the electrical installation; both MV and LV. Ormazabal will be responsible for supplying the general switching substation and the general protection and metering substation. In addition to the transformer substations in the building where the emergency power generators are located (which will generate the necessary energy in the event of a power failure in the electric utility's network), and in the industrial building (where the machine rooms, air conditioning, lifts and large motors in general are located). All equipped with MV cubicles, communication, protection and control electronics, prefabricated buildings, and Ormazabal's organic transformers.
The construction of this hospital is a great challenge for Ormazabal and the other companies involved in the project (Viales and M.E. Crescencio Pérez-Electrocuenca, among others) as it is scheduled to open its doors in November; a deadline that Ormazabal is determined to meet as a member of the essential services value chain, and because of our commitment to them.
