Get an Electrician in to survey and plan the works required to install these showers.

I come across this all the time. The answer is generally no, but as pete999 says it needs a survey by competent person.

If you only have one phase then I would recommend no more than 2 but even that depends on the loading in the rest of hotel.

Yes it’s normal. If it’s 80A I would probably only recommend 1 electric shower depending on load of rest of hotel.

jean-marc. forgive me if I have the wrong end of the stick here, but it seems from the question above "I just need a diagram and the modification" , that you intend going ahead with your plans regardless of the advice given so far, is that correct?

Hi jean- mark.
I’ve given advice based on information supplied. 1 shower possibly 2 depending on load of the rest of hotel. In order to know this load you will have to get a competent spark in to physically calculate.

What more advice do you require?

You have been given the right advice by Members, you need a survey by both the DNO and a qualified Electrical Contractor, if you choose not to agree with the advice, and go ahead regardless, then on your head be it, oh and stop shouting,

so you're planning on installing a total load of 350A onto what is probably a 100A supply. buy a pack of BS1361-II fuses or speed dial your local DNO.
