Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed one of the largest projects it has ever undertaken in the field of lightning protection.

PTSG Electrical Services Ltd was initially contracted in December 2016 Urbaser Balfour Beatty (UBB) – partners in a joint venture to create and manage the Gloucester Energy from Waste Facility. PTSG’s engineers were given the task of installing a full lightning protection and earthing system at the new facility, which it completed at the end of 2019.

Residual waste is non-hazardous waste which cannot be recycled or reused and is therefore termed ‘residual’. The Gloucester Energy from Waste Facility, which is now operational at Javelin Park near Gloucester, significantly reduces the county’s dependence on landfill, whilst recovering value from waste in the form of electricity, recyclable metals, and aggregates.

Aside from safely dealing with residual waste, which cannot readily be recycled or composted, the facility generates the equivalent electricity to power 25,000 homes and contributes to Gloucestershire’s overall renewable energy production.

PTSG delivers the full range of lightning protection services – including the design, installation, test and maintenance of full systems for lightning protection, surge protection and specialist earthing.
