Project Name: Advent Health Hospital Ocala
Location: 1500 SW 1st Ave, Ocala, FL 34471
Project Type: Acute Care Community Hospital
Synopsis: Automatic transfer switch failure leaves community hospital exposed to risk of fire protection system failure if power outage occurs.
Details: Advent Health’s Ocala Hospital is a leading provider of acute care for the North-Central Florida region. Upon learning that the automatic transfer switch on the electric fire pump controller failed to operate during routine testing, the Plant Operations Manager was left searching for a solution to ensure that the Hospital, as well as it’s patients and team members would be protected if there was a loss of power during an emergency fire event.
By partnering with RentFirePumps.com a mobile temporary fire pump solution was delivered ensuring that the facility would maintain adequate fire protection coverage until a new fire pump controller with built in automatic transfer switch could be installed.
Solution: RentFirePumps.com delivered and installed a mobile temporary fire pump to provide 1000 GPM to the Hospital’s fire sprinkler system(s) protecting patients, team members, and the building.
Temporary Fire Pump: Diesel 1000 GPM @ 165 PSI – FP Controller (110 v) – Jockey Pump – JP Controller – Test Header –Discharge – Pressure relief valve (Dial in the required pressure) – Day Tank – Low Fuel Alarm
