Atrium Health’s Carolinas Medical Center CEP Emergency Generator
The Rodgers project team at Atrium Health CMC Main completed a build out of existing shell space in the Central Energy Plant in order to add new Emergency Generators. The space houses a new rotation unit, four 3-megawatt generators for additional emergency power, cooling towers for the generators and new switch gear. The team also modified existing switch gear and generators to ensure compatibility with the new system.
The emergency generators provide power for all three branches of emergency power required by the hospital – critical, life safety and equipment. In the case of a power outage, these emergency generators are required to fire up, sync and provide power back to the hospital within ten seconds.
