Our experience in the Utilities Sector has equipped us with the knowledge and the Accreditations to meet and exceed customers expectations and needs in the Water Industry, Power, Gas and more recently Battery Storage Facilities


With more than a decade worth of experience in this sector, we are confident working with both distribution and transmission sites across the UK.

A number of colleagues have gained ‘Authorised’ accreditation through experience of working within a live substation environment across multiple sites. The ‘authorised’ staff are permitted to sign on to a ‘Limitation of Access’ permit within a live substation. This allows them to work unsupervised within the substation and also permits them to supervise others as required. These qualifications make it possible for us to work on CNI graded sites safely and efficiently.

We are also Achilles UVBD accredited for our work on electricity sites, having achieved a 100% score in our Achilles audit, 4 years in a row.

Lithium Ion Battery Storage Facilities

More recently we have been working on a battery storage facility for our customers, managing the project from start to finish. Our primary focus is on ‘Management and Control’, with experience in combining various preventative measures and technologies. Making sure that potential fire and security risks are caught early so that major incidents can be prevented.

Working closely with expert battery storage consultants, we strive to better understand challenges that our customers face as well as keeping up to date with developing industry standards, both now and in the future.
