PTSG completes challenging work in the Scottish Islands

03 August 2016

Premier Technical Services Group PLC (PTSG) has recently completed the re-testing of lightning protection systems at a number of sites in Scotland for Scottish Water, despite unwelcome visits from some very bold seabirds.

The 99 sites the Group is required to visit as part of its 3-year contract include several extremely remote areas of Scotland’s islands, including the Shetland Islands and the Isle of Orkney.

The logistical issues that come with accessing sites like these are numerous, and a considerable amount of planning was required to coordinate ferry travel, hotel bookings and site opening times.

The testing and inspection team faced another unique problem when completing this work, in the form of territorial seagulls!

The threat of being dive-bombed by an aggressive seagull meant the team had to improvise, fashioning bird deterrents out of anything they could find on site.

Nevertheless, the PTSG team completed the work to its usual high standard, overcoming the islands’ novel obstacles, and furthering PTSG’s reputation as an industry leader in working at height.
