PPSPower has won maintenance contracts at two hotel chains in the UK.
The back-up power and generator service maintenance solutions provider will carry out planned preventative maintenance (PPM) schedules at 42 sites in the UK as part of the two contracts.
The company will look after 18 sites from Edinburgh down to Portsmouth for hospitality hotel group AccorInvest Group, completing the annual PPM for the next three years.
PPSPower will also provide annual PPM for another hotel chain in a five-year contract covering 24 sites, including the company’s first works in Dublin.
Stephen Peal, managing director at PPSPower, said: “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.
“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.
“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 on to the hotel roof. But whatever the job, you can be assured it will be completed safely and effectively.”
