Generator Load Bank Testing, UHW Heath Hospital

Back to Case Studies


As a well established service provider to many of the NHS Trusts in Wales, Cardiff Diesel Services supports a maintenance contract for all the Cardiff & Vale NHS Trust hospital standby diesel generators. Our engineers work closely with the estates department at the largest hospital in the Welsh NHS Trust, the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff,  to provide maintenance, repairs and load bank proof testing of the hospital standby diesel generators.

Customer’s requirements

Ensuring that all the hospital standby generators are all fit for purpose and are ready and able to give essential support to vital services and operating theatres should a mains supply failure occur across all sites. While site based NHS staff are able to routinely check and run the standby generators on light or no load on a monthly basis, our ability to be able to load bank proof test each generator to full capacity in a controlled manor with the least disruption to the hospital services was a high priority for the Health Trust Estates management team.

How we helped

The Cardiff Diesel Services engineering team completed the generator load bank testing at the UHW by working flexible hours so not to impact on any hospital services or operating theatres outside of their normal working hours. The load bank testing was carried out efficiently and successfully across all seven generators ranging from 200kva to 1500kva.
