Premier Technical Services Group plc (PTSG) is to carry out vital repair works to the lightning protection system at HMP Berwyn in North Wales.

Permission was granted in 2014 to build the facility in Wrexham, which was subsequently opened in February 2017. With a capacity of 2,106, HMP Berwyn is the largest prison in England and Wales and the second largest in Europe.

The system will ensure that the site is protected from lightning strikes and that all electrical equipment within remains safe and functional in a storm.

The installation, testing and maintenance of lightning repair systems is a major part of PTSG’s provision within PTSG Electrical Services. With offices throughout the UK, its engineers can be mobilised to attend any site to meet its clients’ needs. It has a varied portfolio across multiple sectors, including a number of prisons in the public sector.
