Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is currently working on a specialist services contract at the popular amusement park Alton Towers.

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd are back on site in Staffordshire, near the village of Alton, to upgrade the existing lightning protection systems and add further protection. Work will take place over the winter period.

In 2017, Alton Towers Resort was the second most visited theme park in the UK after Legoland Windsor. The park operates a total of ten roller coasters and offers a range of accommodation and lodging options alongside the theme park. Facilities include Alton Towers Waterpark, conference facilities, a crazy golf course, and a high ropes course. Whilst the theme park is closed during winter, many of its hotels and amenities are open all year round.

The number of lightning protection projects PTSG is contracted for through it’s electrical services division continues to grow in breadth and depth. Sites vary from historic or protected buildings, such as Leeds’ Grade I-listed Leeming building and Berrington Hall in Herefordshire, to iconic buildings including Battersea Power stations, as well as a vast number of buildings in the higher education sector.
