Emerson Provides Solutions to China’s Hospitals to Cope with COVID-19
Increased production to meet demand
WUHAN, China — To cope with the rapidly increasing number of Covid-19 patients in China, emergency specialty field hospitals, Leishenshan Hospital and Huoshenshan Hospital, were ordered to be constructed together with a number of makeshift shelters in multiple cities across China.
In partnership with TICA, an air conditioning equipment provider, Emerson contributed to the construction of these field hospitals by providing air conditioning solutions equipped with Copeland Digital Scroll compressors.
When the order for compressors was made, Emerson's Suzhou plant quickly ramped up production. Two days later, on February 12, 2020, the first compressor shipments were delivered to Wuhan, followed by additional shipments to Beijing, Zhengzhou, and Xinjiang for the construction of other hospitals.
