Our services save lives, increase efficiency and reduce whole-life cost
Background: PTSG Electrical Services provides protection against lightning strikes at a factory where explosives are made.
Results: Chemring Defence has more than 100 years’ experience of providing pyrotechnic and demolition products. They are a key supplier to the British Armed forces and the Ministry of Defence (MoD).
The factory which PTSG was asked to install lightning protection on produces thunder flashes, smoke bombs, stun grenades and CS gas for soldiers working on the front line in Afghanistan.
Obviously, protection against lightning is absolutely vital at a factory where explosives are made.
Andrew Dack, managing director of PTSG Electrical Services, said: “Our design team was delighted with this challenge and we also implemented a test and maintenance programme to run every six months as opposed to annually.
“It was important that the protections at such an important site be maintained much more robustly than other less vulnerable buildings.
“These sorts of contracts really show the trust which companies put in us to deliver the best systems which offer the best protection.
“Working within these industries presents unique challenges, not least the security that we have to pass. These contracts really do go some way to proving PTSG Electrical Services is a trusted and reliable company to do business with.”
