Backup Generators for Hospitals

Hospital generators are a key service for us at Vital Power, and we offer rapid response time for any service or emergency work you may need, from our nationwide operational hubs.

Backup Power for Healthcare Facilities

Having a reliable source of backup power is essential for hospitals and facilities across the healthcare industry. In the event of a power outage, everything from loss of communication amongst staff to life support systems powering down can be dangerous, life threatening and even fatal.

While we can’t always predict when the mains power will fail – due to damage, power surges or adverse weather – we can guarantee you’ll be able to rely on your Vital Power standby generator for a supply of emergency power.

We specialise in critical power systems for businesses and facilities right across the UK. We operate a full-service generator power offering, providing regular and scheduled maintenance to your diesel generator.

How do hospital backup generators work?

In the event of a mains failure, a standby generator will kick in to support the full load of your site.

Using an automatic transfer switch, they can be set up to automatically kick in when an outage is detected. For hospitals this is particularly vital, for maintaining power to life support systems, operating rooms and A&E departments.

An emergency generator coupled with a reliable Uninterruptible Power System (UPS) can be crucial for guaranteeing ongoing power even in an unplanned or unexpected outage.
