Energy Tour of the Balfour Hospital

August 1, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

OREF is pleased to announce that the next event will take place at the Balfour Hospital in Kirkwall on Tuesday 1st August at 7pm.  Sharon Smith of NHS Orkney will outline local activities and plans to improve the sustainability of healthcare in the county and Dominic Symonds of contractor and operator Robertsons will explain the energy system in use. The talk will be followed by a ‘back-stage’ tour of the Energy Centre, heat pumps, heat wheels and solar installation on the site.

Spaces for this event are limited so booking free of charge via Eventbrite at the link below is essential.  Please arrive by 6.55pm for a prompt 7pm start.  The assembled visitors will be collected at 7pm SHARP from the foyer of the hospital and taken to the lecture room.  Access needs to be accomplished as one group, so please don’t be late.  Late arrivals will not be admitted.



If you are unable to attend in person, the first part of the event (the presentations) will be available to view on Zoom (details below).  We are unable to film the second part of the event (the tour).
