When UNC Rex Healthcare elected to build a new central energy plant, it meant relocating standby power generation equipment from the basement of the hospital in Raleigh, N.C. to a new standalone central energy plant in the rear of the campus.
In conjunction with the move, Rex purchased two Cat® C175-16 generator sets to go with the existing Cat 3516
genset that was relocated from the basement.
Another Cat C175-20 was added when additional capacity was required as part of the hospital’s Heart and Vascular campus expansion.
“We have a long, ongoing partner relationship with our Cat dealer, Gregory Poole,” says Rex facility director Jeff Carter. “We’ve had a very good relationship with them for many years, and it was pretty much decided that we were going to use Cat generators at the beginning of this project.”
