The Emergency Power Supply System (EPSS) project for Providence Alaska Medical Center includes a generator power plant, a medium voltage power distribution system, and a fuel oil storage system. The EPSS provides the main hospital facility with four days of standalone backup electrical power. One of the design goals for this facility was to integrate into the existing campus in a way that blended with the surroundings and contributes to a positive patient experience.
The building includes 4 new emergency diesel generators each rated at 2 MW. Space is provided for one future generator that will be needed to support a future chiller water plant and to maintain the N+1 redundancy well into the future as the healthcare campus continues to grow.
