Grundfos help to deliver Glasgow’s NHS Louisa Jordan

Grundfos Pumps responded to an urgent request from contractors Balfour Beatty; who in conjunction with consultants Hulley & Kirkwood; had an immediate requirement for additional water boosting as part of the transformation of the SEC in Glasgow.

The call was received for 3 x Grundfos Hydro MPC-E booster sets. These were needed to support the conversion of this conference centre into a 1300 bed field hospital, renamed the NHS Louisa Jordan hospital, after the Glaswegian nurse who worked tirelessly to save life’s in Serbia during WW1.

The order was received on a Monday and the three boosters were then built to order, tested and shipped out from Grundfos’ manufacturing plant in Sunderland in just 3 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 3 x Grundfos UPS 32-80N found themselves been hurriedly driven north, in a relay supported by Grundfos and BSS personnel, in just a couple of hours of the demand being acknowledged.

The final result is another example of a great team effort from Grundfos sales, production and service teams and we are all very proud to be playing a small role in the must win battle against COVID-19.
