Daikin has recently provided its top-of-the-line HVAC system for a big medical facility in Africa, most specifically in Angola.
The hospital which is being built aims at providing the best medical care through state-of-the-art infrastructure. With its 300-beds and the 6 operating theatres, the hospital is one of the biggest in the area, and it needed a HVAC system which could match the importance of the facility.

The pieces of equipment described above will be used to ensure that the hospital will always offer the right level of thermal comfort and indoor air quality to patients who will need the medical services.
Thermal comfort was extremely important for this facility, as patients recovering from health problems deserve the best possible thermal comfort.
But that was not the only aspect. Perfect temperature control had to be guaranteed to prevents machines that are essential to patients’ treatments – lasers and MRI – from breaking down. Essentially, the hospital needed to guarantee the reliability of the equipment used in labs and operating theatres to ensure continuity of the services to their patients.
One of the reasons why Daikin was chosen, was definitely the ability to provide the building with the right amount of cooling while keeping energy expenditures very low. In fact, with its in-house built Screw Inverter technology, Daikin could offer the best efficiency levels in the market.

Indoor air quality
And last but not least, there was the aspect of Indoor air Quality. The hospital will benefit from the ability of Daikin’s Air Handling Units to provide the best indoor air, providing adequate air exchange and filtration at all times, with no downside whatsoever in terms of thermal comfort.
Indoor air quality is an extremely important aspect for this kind of applications. Patients’ immune system is usually weak and their bodies vulnerable to bacteria, viruses and airborne infections. Thoroughly designed HVAC system can help reduce the density of infectious particles in indoor spaces by introducing clean, filtered air, that can even be cleaner than outdoor air.
Ventilation, then, has been receiving growing attention in the last few months, as it is seen as a measure against the spread of Coronavirus in indoor environments.
