Description

Due to the age of the existing UPS systems, at Austin Tower Level B4 and HSB tunnel level 1, there has been a steady increase in UPS faults as the equipment reaches the end of its in-service life. Each UPS is around 15 years old and replacement parts are no longer available from the industry to service these UPS’s. This presents a substantial organisational risk as the UPS Units support critical clinical areas.  

As a result, Austin Health has procured funding for the replacement of these two UPS systems. The consultant would be required to investigate existing conditions and recommend a suitable methodology for upgrading the two new UPS systems, whilst maintaining system uptime. The system design should include UPS units and the strategy/implementation to cut over the existing UPS loads to the new system. This may include modification to the existing UPS accommodation or creation of new accommodation. 

Two separate tenders will be released for the procurement of two UPS systems. Details have been outlined below:

Separable Portion 1: Harold Stokes Building and Lance Townsend Building UPS.

The current UPS services the following clinical areas on the campus; Operating theatres, 23 bed ICU, Recovery, Angiography and IT services. It has a critical role in ensuring patient safety in the most critical areas of a tertiary level hospital.

The UPS currently resides in a tunnel plantroom on level 1 of Harold Stokes Building, the room is inadequately sized to accommodate this 500KVA UPS system and as a result has inadequate ventilation system. Logging of UPS faults has made apparent the unreliable nature of the UPS due to its age. 

Separable Portion 2: Austin Tower and Mercy Hospital UPS.

The current Austin Tower UPS supports a full range of clinical areas on the campus; Angiography, ICU, Emergency Department, Cath Lab and IT services. It has a critical role in ensuring patient safety in the most critical areas of a tertiary level hospital.

The UPS currently resides in the basement level 4 plantroom of the level 1 of the Austin Tower, the room is inadequately sized to accommodate this 400KVA UPS system and as a result has inadequate ventilation system. Logging of UPS faults has made apparent the unreliable nature of the UPS due to its Age. The UPS unit age is approximately 15 years old and there are no spare parts available from the industry.

All the attached documents are in draft stage. Final version will be updated at the time of tender release.

The scope of works involve:

  • The Austin Hospital currently has two separate UPS systems that support a range of clinical areas on the campus.
  • The two systems are past end of life and require replacement.

  • The UPS room will be provided with air conditioning under a separate mechanical contract which will cater for the heat rejection criteria as highlighted by the UPS Supplier during the submission stage. 
  • The UPS Vendor will be ultimately responsible for the delivery of the project and the complete replacement of the UPS system in conjunction with their Electrical Installer.
  • The UPS Vendor will be required to work in conjunction with the electrical installation contractor to execute the start-up and commissioning services to fully commission the installation as a seamless delivery
