Campus Gasthuisberg is the largest university hospital in Belgium. And the site is still expanding. For each of those expansions and renovations, we at EBB are in charge. From the electrical panels for the new construction of the first proton therapy centre in Belgium to the replacement of old installations. But always in ELSTEEL.
We are the only panel builder in the Benelux to be allowed to build in ELSTEEL. ELSTEEL is a flexible framework with an excellent price-quality ratio. Especially towards large capacities, it is the solution.
Of course, it is a matter of standardization for UZ Leuven. But ELSTEEL has numerous advantages for their specific situation.
For example, it is an enormously flexible system – we can go completely customised in terms of form. ELSTEEL works with multiples of 20 centimetres. Whereas with other brands, only a limited number of standard sizes are available.
This results in two major advantages
- We can work around concrete beams and shafts.
- We can make optimal use of the full wall height.
An advantage in new buildings. But in UZ Leuven’s existing buildings, sometimes the only solution to get rid of all that power in the available space.
ELSTEEL also has another technical advantage: the drawers can be pulled out. As a result, changes, expansions and maintenance can be done afterwards without having to switch off the entire board. So everything just stays operational – a must for UZ Leuven.
