Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has secured an order to provide lightning protection system installation at Phase two of a development project at Battersea Power Station.

Specialist engineers from PTSG’s Electrical Services division will attend the power station to provide a new lightning protection system to the existing power station structure. The new system will keep building users protected in the event of a lightning strike.

The Phase two installation is one of PTSG’s biggest lighting protection schemes to date and as such will require regular weekly attendances from both management and engineers to ensure the client receives the high level of service that is synonymous with the division’s work.

As part of an extensive redevelopment, the Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station and surrounding area is being brought back to life as a mixed-use neighbourhood. The first phase of the scheme consisted of 12 high rise residential blocks to the west of the 39-acre site. Phase two of the development includes new retail space adjacent to the power station’s two turbine halls, as well as commercial office space and residential apartments.

Last year PTSG’s engineers completed the lightning protection installation on the Battersea Power Station Phase one project, which commenced in March 2014. The Group has also recently secured contracts to perform several installations at residential and commercial developments in London and the South-east.
