Heating and climate in the operating room

Posted on


In the Bethel Berlin hospital, the use of combined heat and power units as well as the substitution of old pumps by modern speed-controlled ones in the heating system provide enormous savings. In the Hubertus Protestant Hospital, the efficiency of the cooling units will is increased by about one third during the transitional seasons. Moreover, a subsurface rainwater tank serves as a reservoir for park irrigation and, in emergency cases, it can be used by the fire brigade for immediate fire fighting. Thus both hospitals in Berlin are able to reduce their water and energy costs by some hundred thousand Euros and to use the saved money where it is most needed – in the care sector.
