Premier Technical Services Group (PTSG) is to carry out further maintenance works at the UK’s busiest airport.
PTSG’s South Suspended Access division has already completed notable works at Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 and Terminal 4 this year and has now secured further contracts to deliver works on the site.
Over the coming weeks, the team will fix bolts on 33 latchways at the Heathrow World Cargo Centre and install two manual release handles at the Heathrow Control Tower. A five-day insurance inspection will also be carried out at Terminal 3.
Scott Hawtrey, divisional director at PTSG, said: “Once again, we are delighted to have been contracted to deliver further maintenance works at Heathrow Airport and given the opportunity to continue to strengthen our association with the facility.
“Carrying out works at the UK’s busiest airport presents logistical challenges due to the number of people on the site at all times of the day and night but the works, like all of our previous works at the airport, will be delivered in a way that does not affect day-to-day operations.”
Heathrow is a major international airport and is the third busiest in the world (from 2013-14), handling more international passengers than any other airport around the globe.
The airport, which is owned and operated by Heathrow Airport Holdings, sustains 76,600 jobs directly and around 116,000 indirectly.
