Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG)’s Electrical Services division has been awarded a contract to provide installation of lightning protection at a worker’s village at Hinkley Point C Power Station.
The vast workers village provides 1,496 en-suite bedrooms across 44 buildings at two key locations. It is considered to be the largest hotel-style development in Europe in over 25 years, equivalent to a three-star hotel.
Specialist engineers will attend the site at Hinkley Point to install lightning protection at the 44 accommodation blocks, ensuring all systems comply with relevant safety standards and protect the buildings in the event of a strike.
PTSG is a company with vast experience in delivering specialist works at power stations. In recent years it has performed chimney repairs at Drax Power Station in North Yorkshire, Lynemouth Power Station in Northumberland and has also installed a state-of-the-art lightning protection system at Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station in Suffolk.
