Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has secured a contract for the inspection of lightning protection systems at Portsmouth’s Queen Alexandra Hospital.
Queens Alexandra Hospital, which is run by Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, is a vital resource for residents as the only hospital serving the city of Portsmouth and surrounding area in Hampshire. Its emergency department is one of the busiest in the UK, treating more than 132,000 patients each year, while maternity services are responsible for the delivery of about 6,300 babies per year, making it one of the largest on the south coast.
PTSG’s Electrical Services division will continue to carry out lightning protection testing and inspection at the hospital for another year. The lightning protection systems are crucial for the protection of patients, staff and visitors in the event of a thunderstorm.
PTSG is the UK market leader for lightning protection and earthing systems. The company is a member of The Association of Technical and Lightning Specialists (ATLAS).
