PTSG to install lightning protection system at The Christie in Manchester

Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) is to install a new lightning protection system at Manchester hospital The Christie.

PTSG Electrical Services has been contacted to fit the system to the hospital’s Proton Beam Therapy (PBT) Centre, which is due to become operational in 2018.

The associated works will see PTSG engineers fit a Farady cage system, comprising a five metre by five metre grid matrix, onto the roof, which will be bonded to all exposed metalwork and served by down conductors to earth at a maximum of ten metre centres around the building.

The earth termination network will utilise the reinforcing bars within the pile foundation. The piles are at a depth of 12 metres and are interconnected via a type B ring main.

Also included within the works is the installation of earth nests for two transformers, one generator and one “clean” earth.

The Christie is one of the largest cancer treatment centres in Europe. It became an NHS Foundation Trust in 2007 and treats approximately 40,000 patients every year.

Two PBT centres are being developed nationally, one at The Christie and the other at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH). They are both being funded by a £250m government investment.

The Christie PBT centre will be a state-of-the-art five-storey building situated in Oak Road with two and a half floors dedicated to PBT and the remaining two and half floors to be available for alternative Trust use when necessary and as appropriate.
