Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has been contracted to provide specialist electrical services at a new £55m Southampton cruise terminal set to open in 2021.
The facility being built will let suitably equipped ships plug in to a local power supply while in port, rather than using onboard generators. Much of the cruise industry worldwide has been shut down since March. Associated British Ports (ABP) said its opening – sometime next year – would be a “vote of confidence” in the port. Built in partnership with MSC Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd, it will be the port’s fifth terminal for cruise passengers.
PTSG’s part in the project will be to install a new lightning protection system. Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd work extensively throughout the UK to protect buildings and their users in a wide range of industries. In addition, they provide surge protection systems and specialist earthing solutions. This makes the Group the UK’s market leader in this field.
