PPSPower Wins Two Major Hotel Chain Contracts

PPSPower, a provider of back-up power and generator service maintenance solutions has been awarded contracts with two major hotel chains.

The North Yorkshire-based company has been chosen to carry out Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) schedules to a total of 42 sites spanning the UK as part of the two contracts.

“Particularly in the hotel sector, it is vital there is a reliable, back-up power system in place, should the worst happen. Failure to have one in place doesn’t just cost money but, can also cost a hotel its reputation.”

Managing Director, PPSPower

AccorInvest Group

 

For leading hospitality hotel group AccorInvest Group, the company will be looking after 18 sites from Edinburgh down to Portsmouth, completing the annual PPM for the coming three years.

PPSPower will also provide annual PPM for another leading hotel chain, in a five-year contract for 24 sites, including the company’s first work in Dublin.

Stephen Peal, managing director at PPSPower, said: “We are delighted to have been successful with tenders for both of these prestigious hotel chains. It is further evidence that we are the go-to company to be trusted with both generator and UPS maintenance and repair.

"We are particularly pleased to be working in Dublin – our first step into providing these services in Ireland.

“We’ll load bank testing the units across all the sites, while also providing standard major and minor services annually.”

The two contracts are in addition to a long list of hotels and hotel chains that PPSPower supports across the UK.

Stephen added: “Time is money in the retail and hospitality sector with several high-profile businesses trusting us to keep their businesses moving when the power goes out.

“Particularly in the hotel sector, it is vital there is a reliable, back-up power system in place, should the worst happen. Failure to have one in place doesn’t just cost money but, can also cost a hotel its reputation.”

 

Avoiding disruption in the hospitality industry 

 

“We have vast experience in working in the hospitality sector and are conscious that any work we carry out doesn’t disrupt the stay of its guests and the staff going about their work.

“Our teams have the expertise in working in a whole range of scenarios. Some of the larger, more prestigious sites, can prove to be very challenging.

“In one case of a generator installation, some street closures were needed to gain access for a 1,000 tonne crane to lift the set and associated components onto the hotel roof.”
