AVED wins contract to maintain hospital vehicles

Our Airport & Vehicle Engineering Division has won, through open tender, a contract to maintain the five vehicles serving the Wong Tai Sin Hospital, under the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals. The one-year contract started in September 2003. The award signifies that the EMSTF has been making good progress and has become highly competitive in vehicle maintenance work.

To further understand the specific needs of our client, we visited them at the Wong Tai Sin Hospital on 3 October 2003. They were very impressed by our core values of customer focus, customer care, integrity, commitment and service excellence. We look forward to a sustained and fruitful relationship to our valuable clients!

Health Sector Division tests the effectiveness of portable HEPA Filter

Our Health Sector Division has tested the performance of the floor-stand type air purifiers procured by the Hospital Authority under a typical hospital cubicle setting. The test indicates that these air purifiers are effective in removing air particles as small as 0.02 micrometre (about the size of the smallest known viruses) to larger than 5 micrometres. The performance of the equipment is in line with the design and complies with the tender specification.
