Cat® dealer supplies rental power to field hospitals and decontamination unit in Washington state

The first confirmed case in the U.S. of the global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was announced by the state of Washington on January 21. Until mid-March, Washington state had the highest absolute number of confirmed cases and the highest number per capita of any state in the country.

At Camp Murray—which serves as home to the Washington National Guard south of Tacoma—Cat® dealer N C Power Systems supplied an 80 kW rental generator that supplies power to four small portable structures that are being used to sterilize personal protective equipment (PPE) to help contain the outbreak in western Washington state and beyond. Hospitals will send N95 masks to Camp Murray.

The decontamination system will be able to clean and sterilize up to 80,000 protective N-95 respirator masks every day, according to Katy Delaney, a spokesperson for the Battelle Critical Care Decontamination System. Hospitals have had to ration masks and other medical protective gear due to a national shortage.

“We are facing a challenging time, and safety is our top priority,” said Mark Keeler, vice president of N C Power Systems. “Our top priority is to keep our employees healthy while taking care of our customers. Currently, all our facilities remain open to serve their needs, and we have the resources in place to minimize any disruptions.”
