Premier Technical Services Group (PTSG) has completed a specialist electrical services project at John Lennon Airport, where its engineers have previously worked.
The international airport, originally known as Speke Airport, was opened in 1933. It was operated by the RAF during World War II; in 2001 its name was changed to John Lennon Airport after the legendary singer-songwriter who was of course one quarter of the most successful rock and roll band of all time – the Beatles.
In 2019, the airport handled 5.05 million passengers, making it the thirteenth-busiest passenger airport in the UK.
Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd have completed repairs to the lightning protection system at the airport to ensure it remains fully operational to protect the structure and all users in the event of an electrical storm. An annual test and inspection is mandatory on all such systems and highlights any remedial work that is need. PTSG’s engineers also carry out such tests, as well as designing and installing brand-new systems.
In 2020, PTSG’s had a similar contract at John Lennon Airport to deliver vital repairs to the lightning protection system at the facility.
