ELECTRIC GENERATOR CAPACITY AND FUEL CONSUMPTION IN SYRIAN HOSPITALS:
Approximate depreciation schedule for generators of fuel:
With regards to the electric generators, they were available in all hospitals with varying numbers and various capacities, except for one hospital located in the Central Region that was supplied with electricity from high tension lines. We studied the capacities of these generators and put a rough schedule to determine the amount of consumption of fuel, whether diesel or gasoline per working hour. Therefore, we estimated the needs of each hospital based on this table. The number of total generators was 233 and if they were to run at the same time, we would need about 1290 litres of diesel per hour, that is, on average of 10,340 litres if they were to run 8 hours, and 31,120 litres if they were to run for the whole day.
