Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has been contracted to deliver specialist electrical services for the University of South Wales.
The university is the second-largest university in Wales in terms of student numbers, with campuses in Cardiff, Newport and Pontypridd. It was formed in April 2013 from the merger of the University of Glamorgan and the University of Wales (Newport). However, its roots can be traced to founding of Newport Mechanics’ Institute in 1841.
In 2020 the university entered a strategic alliance with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David through a deed of association. A joint statement said that the two universities would be “working together on a national mission to strengthen Wales’ innovation capacity, supporting economic regeneration and the renewal of its communities”, while retaining their autonomy and distinct identities.
In this contract, engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd will undertake a test and inspection of the lightning protection system in place at the university, in line with British standards. If any areas are found to need maintenance, PTSG’s engineers are fully trained and experienced to carry out the necessary work to ensure the system remains fully operational.
