ENGdoc engineers were on site this week in Dundalk compiling the Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Manuals for Dealgan Nursing Home. The project involves the installation of a standalone Hybrid Energy Pod which generated heat for the building services. This is one of a number of similar projects we will be undertaking over the coming months on behalf of Eco Life Ireland to produce handover documentation for their Hybrid Energy Pods.
The pod, which is a pre-fabricated energy unit, generates LPHW and Domestic Hot Water for the nursing home extension project. It uses a hybrid heating arrangement which is designed to give optimum performance depending on the site conditions. A combination of natural gas fired condensing boilers and absorption heat pumps are used on this installation. They combine to generate heating services to the building with maximum efficiency depending on demand and conditions.
Our services involve producing a site specific handover manual to allow the client operate and maintain their building. They need to be able to achieve this in a manner which is safe and in line with its design intent. Our focus is to provide clear and complete information to the end user which will enhance their understanding of this technology. This then gives the client the tools to ensure the plant and equipment remain operating to their maximum efficiency throughout the lifecycle of this building.
Site attendance by our engineer ensures that aspects particular to this site are captured in the O&M Manual. Specific locations for the supply and isolation of services are accurately identified in the documentation. This gives the end user confidence when faced with operating and maintaining the system. It also allows them to find what they need quickly and easily.
ENGdoc are proud to be working on behalf of Eco Life Ireland to compile the O&M Manuals and ‘as built’ drawings for this project.
