Project Brief

The Royal Victoria Hospital is one of four linked hospitals making up Northern Ireland’s largest and best-known hospital complex. Every year, over 80,000 people as inpatients and 350,000 people as outpatients are treated in the hospital.

A number of regional special services are hospital at the Royal Victoria Hospital including Cardiac Surgery, Critical Care and Regional Trauma Centre.

The existing flue system are the Royal Victoria Hospital served the original coal fired boilers for 30 years. High levels of corrosion meant the existing chimneys were no longer viable. The hospital called John J Doyle Ltd for consultation for developing a gas fired boiler system.

After completion of survey, John J Doyle Ltd recommended a plan to install a new gas fired boiler flue system without causing disruption to the hospital’s energy supply.

John J Doyle Ltd designed, supplied and installed three new chimneys. After each new chimney was commissioned, the old existing chimney was demolished. By using a phased installation model John J Doyle Ltd was able to maintain the hospital’s energy supply.
