Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has been contracted to deliver specialist electrical services at a 400-bed facility being built next to University Hospital Wales.

The £33m facility is being built in Cardiff to help manage any potential increase in coronavirus cases this winter.

Wales Health Minister Vaughan Gething said: “This investment will help Cardiff and Vale University Health Board manage any potential increase in admissions caused by Covid-19 in what is likely to be a challenging winter for health and social care services.

“We know the winter can present greater difficulty for NHS staff, and with the virus more likely to spread in colder conditions we need to ensure we have the bed capacity to cope with increased demand.”

Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd will install a lightning protection system at the new facility to protect the structure and users in the event of an electrical storm.

PTSG was also involved in the creation of the NHS Nightingale Hospitals, delivering fire and security systems at the facility in Exeter; in Bristol, the Group’s engineers provided lightning protection and earthing upgrade works to the facility there.
