Bethesda Hospital in Hoogeveen
Treant Healthcare Group’s Hoogeveen location, Bethesda Hospital, is a weekday hospital for plannable care. Their services include operations, outpatient appointments with specialists, check-ups and medical examinations such as echoes, x-rays and drawing blood. It goes without saying that all of this is only possible in a well-maintained facility. This is where TBR Solutions comes into play; a critical part of Bethesda’s maintenance entails periodically monitoring and maintaining the boiler room, a task that lies well within TBR’s expertise.
Steam generated by Bethesda’s boilers is used for a diverse range of activities, such as heating the building, sterilising medical equipment and regulating the indoor climate by humidifying air. These boilers are one of a kind, as they are attached to a cogeneration unit that generates the hospital’s electricity. Flue gasses from this process are then used to heat the boiler, making this a uniquely complex installation.
We have an uncommon and distinguished expertise regarding complex steam installations. Because of this, Treant has outsourced the maintenance of this installation to TBR Solutions.
Treant Healthcare Group has established a long-term collaborative business relationship with TBR for the maintenance of their Hoogeveen location’s steam boiler installation. For the periodical inspections conducted once every two years, TBR has joined hands with Lloyds Register to carefully examine the entire installation and to revise and check appendages (valves, safeties etc.). After inspection the boiler is meticulously reassembled, reconnected, filled and stoked. The safeties are then thoroughly re-examined to ensure a safe and reliable installation. Upon approval by Treant Healthcare Group, the boiler installation is ready to go for the subsequent two years.
TBR’s collaboration with Treant Healthcare Group includes complete unburdening through periodical inspections once every two years. All relevant parts are then inspected and, if necessary, replaced, keeping the critically important boiler installation in great shape.
