Aintree University Hospital is a large teaching hospital in Liverpool providing Accident & Emergency services and a wide range of acute and non-ac​​​​​​​ute specialties. Serving a population of around 330,000 in North Liverpool, South Sefton and Kirkby.


Following a cable flashover in an existing panel it was vital to replace the panel and restore the supply as soon as possible. Hawker Siddeley Switchgear were able to attend the site and assess the situation within 24 hours.


After assessment it was decided that the quickest and most efficient solution was to replace the panel. Hawker Siddeley Switchgear then accessed the requirements, manufactured and tested the replacement panel using existing components from site. The replacement panel was then installed and tested at site, all within two working weeks.

The quick turnaround allowed the hospital to remain fully connected, with minimal disruption pleasing the customer who described the service as excellent.
