Wonderware Scandinavia delivers SCADA Platform for efficient operations at the new Odense University Hospital
The Region of Southern Denmark is building a new university hospital in Odense. When completed by the end of 2022, the 286,000 sqm Nyt OUH (New Odense University Hospital) will be among Denmark's largest hospitals with 702 somatic beds, 52 operating theatres and 374 outpatient clinics. Due to the sheer size of the facility and the operational complexity of running a large hospital, requirements to the many technical systems are enormous.
Therefore, the contractor responsible for delivering the new hospital as a turnkey solution has chosen AVEVA System platform to ensure optimum integration between the numerous operational and building systems.
"We are proud that AVEVA System Platform has been chosen for New OUH. The hospital requires extremely high levels of openness, scalability, security and easy integration between systems which is exactly what AVEVA System Platform delivers," says Henrik Dybdahl Andersen, Sales Representative at Wonderware Scandinavia.
Centralised access to all systems
AVEVA System Platform provides hospital management and facility managers with one single entry point for all systems through a clear and user-friendly interface. The interface offers a complete overview of all aspects of hospital operations, enabling staff to prioritise and take immediate action in case of critical problems.
The platform can be accessed from computer, tablet and smartphone and uses open communication protocols such as OPC UA for secure and encrypted communication between all devices. In addition, common industry standards (e.g. ISA-88 and ISA-95) are used to connect facilities with control and enterprise systems. Among systems brought together by AVEVA System Platform are ILS, T-doc, Apovision and Dankost.
"By using open, common standards we can provide seamless integration to sub systems as well as enterprise level systems such as ERP and other systems used by hospital management," Henrik Dybdahl Andersen explains.
AVEVA System Platform connects and unites a wide range of systems and functions at the new hospital. Among the many examples are:
- Access control
- Video surveillance
- Fire alarm system
- Lighting control and solar shading (screens, blinds, shades etc.)
- Water and wastewater
- Sterilisation centre
- Task management
- Track and trace of supplies and and production
In addition, the AVEVA System Platform integrates multiple other systems and automated processes such as AGV (automated guided vehicles), pneumatic tube mail, elevators etc.
