New Hospital Plan With High Resiliency and Energy Saving Based on the Experience Of The Great East Japan Earthquake

We will report on the plans of Iwate Medical University Hospital / New Energy Center Building. Iwate Medical University Hospital Iwate Prefecture is located in the Northeastern region of Japan, where The Great East
Japan Earthquake occurred on March 11, 2011. The old hospital was also affected by the earthquake. At that time, all major energy supplies such as electricity and oil were paralyzed. Throughout those unpredicted experiences, the new hospital has revealed with the enhanced resilient of new energy technologies. Establishment of BCP function with a massive disaster Improved power supply reliability with CGS and back up all electric power for hospital in case of power outage New establishment of gas, electricity and oil energy sources diversification Infrastructure reserves of self-sustainable oil and water even at the time of disruption Newly built medium pressure gas infrastructure with high reliability Water infrastructure supply by the town water supply system with 2 system water sources Securing an emergency drainage tank for sewer breakage Efforts to energy saving by installing a vast scale energy center Effective use of waste heat from a commercial generator Use of natural energy by solar power generation + storage battery
Ground heat utilization by heat collecting pile + heat storage tank Maintenance of electric vehicles Cooling water temperature relaxation and free cooling All LED lighting of the hospital ridge Equipment system friendly to patients and staff Circadian lighting that makes the sensational rhythm of newborns redundant Ceiling radiation air conditioning system of chemotherapy room or dialysis room New operating room air conditioning system where patients and staff are comfortable Full ceiling ventilation system to improve the working environment of the kitchen Facade engineering of the hospital at a cold district in Japan The design of windows of the hospital room based on a simulation result of condensation counter-measure Perimeter design that contributes to the provision of the optimal medical environment for patients
