Organisation : Alstom Power Thermal Services Ltd

Application : Site Accommodation Hire

Location : Dublin Bay Power Plant

Requirement :

Alstom is a world leader in power generation and infrastructure, constructing some of Europe’s leading energy efficient and environmentally friendly power stations. 

Alstom recently signed an extension to its existing long-term service agreement at Dublin Bay Power Plant and required staff welfare accommodation for a planned Gas Turbine upgrade and Inspection project. 

Tight project management, organisation and strict adherence to health and safety procedures were paramount for this major outage of the power plant, so a turnkey solution was required, including design, complete project management and specific health and safety requirements.

Solution :

Simon Whitwell, Site Project Manager at Alstom, says:

“We hadn’t used Portakabin before, but knew we had to work with a reputable, professional company. Managing a large workforce remotely, for a project of this nature with such specific requirements, for just 12 weeks, meant it was imperative that we used a supplier who we could rely upon without fail.

When Dublin Bay Power Plant recommended Portakabin, preliminary discussions were carried out and we were happy that they could fulfil our needs.” 

A total of 25 buildings were successfully supplied from our secure accommodation range, on time and on budget, for a variety of applications such as canteens and toilet and shower blocks to offices and storage. Allspace provided a total project management solution to enable the hassle-free installation of the buildings, including: transport, electrical and plumbing hook-ups, external stairs and platform, office and canteen furniture, white goods, pats testing on all electrical goods. 

Simon continues, “It was evident from its track record that Portakabin would be able to firstly supply us with large enough units that were robust and secure enough for such a remote location; and secondly provide a one-stop-shop solution including everything from basics like scaffolding to design, full site services and overall project management.

Overall we were very satisfied with the customer service from Portakabin with everything being delivered on time, within two weeks. Any issues were dealt with quickly and effectively.”

Constructed from fully galvanised structural steel, with a standard half-hour fire resistance and well-designed ventilation and insulation the secure buildings provided an easy-to-maintain, secure, comfortable environment for the site workers.
