Special projects with systems installed by ZARIFOPOULOS group
During 2019, ZARIFOPOULOS S.A. delivered new wards in fully operational condition to AHEPA hospital of Thessaloniki, Bodosakio General Hospital of Ptolemaida and Papanikolaou General Hospital of Thessaloniki. In all three hospitals, the newly built wards included Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and operating rooms. It also refurbished the existing system at the Ag. Anargyroi Oncology Hospital in Athens.
Due to the special nature of the areas, both in the ICUs and in the operating rooms, strict operating conditions need to be maintained and observed. Critical factors such as temperature, humidity and pressure must be monitored and regulated in detail. Specifically, as regards the pressure in these rooms, negative (depression) or positive (overpressure) pressure must be provided on a case-by-case basis, depending on the use. Another critical factor, also closely monitored, in both the operating rooms and the ICUs, is the continuous supply of 100% fresh air by the air conditioning system.
ZARIFOPOULOS successfully installed Building Energy Management Systems (BEMSs) in the above new hospital wards using equipment provided by Honeywell. The software platform used is the CENTRALINE SERIES – ARENA. The NIAGARA operating system, that the ARENA platform features, makes it very reliable, user-friendly and installer-friendly, while there is a great potential for expansion and adaptation to special requirements.
In addition to the BEMSs, ZARIFOPOULOS supplied and installed fire protection systems (fire detection and automatic fire suppression) in these projects.
