Royal University Emergency Generator Plant

Location: Saskatoon, SK

The RUH Emergency Generating Plant provides emergency power to the Royal University Hospital through 3 – 2000kW generators that are housed inside the three-storey structure. The total area of the facility is over 10,000 square feet and contains over 100,000L of diesel storage capacity. The structure itself is structural steel and the exterior is a combination of stone masonry and composite wall panels. The facility contains generator paralleling switchgear and electrical transformers that feed into the RUH. Each generator is equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) reactor to provide Tier 4 emissions controls and critical level exhaust silencing.

The project has been designed to provide backup power to the RUH facility in the event of a power outage so that the facility can continue to operate without interruption.
