Race against time to supply emergency hospital in Hong Kong

Since February 2022 Hong Kong's concerns about the re-emergence of Covid cases grew. To prepare for the inevitable, and aided by China's Central Government, the decision was taken to built an emergency hospital capable of treating 1000 patients. Nexans delivered the needed copper and fibre optic structured cabling systems in 25 days. 

The emergency hospital will consist of 1,000 beds in negative pressure wards, three operating theaters and over 10,000 isolation beds in total. It was completed in 51 days in two phases with 500 beds per phase. The project will significantly enhance Hong Kong's capacity of treating patients infected with Covid-19.

Race against time

As the sole supplier of structured cabling solutions, Nexans and its distribution team set to work to ensure the project is finalized in the set timeframe.
To cope with delays in the supply of raw materials and a tight transportation capacity, Nexans teams in Shanghai, Suzhou and Belgium, together with its distribution team, managed the manufacturing, supply and logistics to deliver the following products within 25 days:

  • 70,000 nodes of Category 6 copper system
  • 500 km of LANmark-OF optical fibre cables
  • 8,000 sets of optical copper mixed patch panels

The whole project and isolation facility in Lok Ma Chau Loop was completed on May 6, 2022.
