Grundfos Pumps responded to an urgent request for additional water boosting as part of the transformation of the SEC in Glasgow into a 1,300-bed field hospital.
Contractors needed three Grundfos Hydro MPC-E booster sets to support the conversion of the conference centre into a hospital, renamed the NHS Louisa Jordan Hospital after the Glaswegian nurse who worked tirelessly to save lives in Serbia during the First World War.
The order was received on a Monday and the three boosters were built to order, tested and shipped from Grundfos’ manufacturing plant in Sunderland in just three days, arriving in Glasgow on the Friday. A member of the Grundfos Service team then visited site to complete the commissioning of the sets and to make sure that the sets were ready to support all the water demands that this facility would need.
As the site neared handover, it was realised that secondary hot water circulators would be needed to support the DHWS. So three Grundfos UPS 32-80Ns were quickly shipped north, in a relay supported by Grundfos and BSS personnel.
