PTSG IS STATIONED AT ICONIC LONDON DEVELOPMENT
Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is currently on site at Battersea Power Station, where its engineers are providing specialist electrical services at this major urban redevelopment programme.

As of 2021, the building and the overall 42-acre site development is owned by a consortium of Malaysian investors. The development includes 253 residential units, bars, restaurants, office space (occupied by Apple and No. 18 business members club), shops and entertainment spaces.
Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd are installing a lightning protection system to the main phase of the project at the converted power station. PTSG has delivered specialist services on a number of occasions during the last seven years. In October 2020, engineers from PTSG Access & Safety Ltd installed ManSafe systems and an abseil track, ensuring the safety of engineers working at height on this iconic structure. PTSG is increasingly called upon for its ability to deliver multiple specialist services for the same client.
