NHS Warwick Hospital making significant operational cost savings

10 March, 2017

Digicon installed and commissioned variable speed drives to AHU fans and heating pumps at Warwick Hospital. The drives were integrated into the existing Johnson Controls building management system to provide significant energy and operational cost savings.

Siobhan Hill, Energy Manager for South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust, said, “This scheme is one of several measures we are implementing at our facilities to reduce energy consumption, reduce bills and help to combat climate change. As a specialist in this field and due to their sole focus and support geared toward variable speed drives, Digicon were the obvious choice. The speedy response to our enquiry and professionalism with which the whole process was under- taken from start to finish was excellent.” Siobhan added, “The initial report was extremely concise and very helpful in securing funding for this project. We were equally pleased with the time scaling of the installation to ensure no disruption to the hospital. One major fact that also had to be considered was response times and support in the event of any problems. Digicon proved to be excellent following a minor problem, as we had a Digicon engineer on site within 3 hours following my initial phone call. They also have 24/7 technical support available if needed. I would have absolutely no problem recommending Digicon to anyone in the future.”
