Prince of Wales Hospital

The Nelune Comprehensive Cancer Centre (the NCCC) will deliver modern facilities and provide an integrated, coordinated, patient-centred approach to the treatment and post-care of patients with cancer and blood disorders across the Randwick Hospitals Campus, which includes the Prince of Wales Hospital, the Royal Hospital for Women and the Sydney Children’s Hospital. The NCCC will bring ambulatory, outpatient and radiotherapy services currently provided across eight sites on the Campus into one centralised facility.  The NCCC will also play a major teaching role in the training of oncologists, radiation therapists, physicists and nurses across the Campus.

The Australian Advanced Treatment Centre (the AATC) is a facility of the University of New South Wales. It will be the first purpose-built early phase clinical trial facility in New South Wales. In addition to first into human and first into patient studies, the facility will also support later phase trials across a broad range of disciplines.

This project consists of two stages. Stage One consists of the construction of a new lower ground treatment area, comprising four radiotherapy bunkers, with three linear accelerators and connections from the radiotherapy treatment area to Prince of Wales Hospital. Stage Two is the demolition of the existing Radiation Oncology building and construction of the new NCCC and AATC facility within the existing building footprint.

Southern Cross was grateful to be awarded the opportunity in August 2013 to provide all the switchboards for Stage One, which consists of the Non-Essential Main Switchboard 1, the Essential Main Switchboard 2, 11 x Distribution Boards and 1 x Remote Shunt Trip Control Panel. The Non-Essential Main Switchboard 1 is 5.2 metres long while the Essential Main Switchboard 2 is 6.8 metres long. Both main switchboards are 2000A rated with fault level 30kA for 1 second, Form 3B, IP42 with insulated busbar. All switchboards were delivered early 2014.
