Overview: Witham Paralleling Gear and Addition
Witham took the initiative to protect its patients in the event of a catastrophic power shutdown or outage. The Paralleling Gear is state of the art protection.
The Paralleling Gear project is a critical part of Witham Hospital’s electrical back up system. The paralleling gear is providing an additional measure of redundancy and security to the facility. This equipment will allow the hospital to operate without utility power feed for weeks. Witham no longer must worry about outages caused by maintenance or worse, a natural disaster.
