Intaka Tech was contacted by the Lesotho Ministry of Health (LM0H) to survey two hospitals in Lesotho because of Intaka’s previous installations of similar systems at three other hospitals in the area. Intaka provided the design proposal which included the plant room design to house the medical gas and vacuum systems.
A contract was signed in September 2022 and the LMOH proceeded to appointed contractors to construct the plant room designed by Intaka to house the 11 Nm3/h Medical Oxygen Gas Generation Plant (GGS O35A), a duplex 110 m3/h Vacuum Plant and a 3.2m3/h high pressure oxygen cylinder filling station capable of filling three cylinders at a time.
On the 22 October 2022 the GGS O35A was commissioned and over the course of the following few weeks our compressed gas installers installed the medical gas piping system comprising 1700 meters of medical gas piping, 14 valve boxes, medical gas alarms, a 2 x 8 oxygen cylinder manifold and an oxygen compressor of 3.2 m3/h fill rate at 150Bar complete with its 3-cylinder docking station. Furthermore, medical gas points were installed throughout the hospital, namely 119 oxygen and 119 vacuum points making up the medical gas piping system.
