Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is currently on site at the City of Manchester Stadium, where its engineers are delivering specialist electrical services.
Manchester City’s home ground, known as the Etihad Stadium for Sponsorship reasons, is in east Manchester. The club moved in 2003, having played at Maine Road since 1923. With a capacity of 53,400 it is the fifth-largest in the Premier League and the tenth-largest in the UK.
Manchester City celebrated winning the Premier League at the weekend for the sixth time – the fourth under the managership of Pep Guardiola. City’s tally of 93 points is the joint fourth-highest total in Premier League history. Yet, remarkably, it is only the third highest City have attained during Guardiola’s reign.
Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd are on site at the stadium this week, performing repairs to the lightning protection system. Lightning protection systems are used in all such sports stadia, providing a low impedance path to ground for potential strikes. This vastly reduces the likelihood of damage to the structure or harm to its users.
