Lynemouth Power Station

We have been Lynemouth Power Station’s asbestos consultant since 2010, at which time we were initially hired to carry out re-inspection works to help their compliance in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations.

During this time, we also worked on their programme of converting from coal to biomass generation, which would enable the site to generate safe and sustainable energy for the UK national grid. Working with Kaefer Ltd, the project consisted primarily of asbestos refurbishment and demolition surveys for three boiler units and associated infrastructures to be completed before the conversion could take place. We also conducted a programme of air monitoring where needed to support contracting operatives risk assessments.

We provide close and dedicated support throughout all our projects and to ensure a consistent approach to planning and communication, a dedicated project manager was assigned for the duration of the works. They provided a single point of contact for all stakeholders and were responsible for resolving issues that may cause delays to the implementation of surveying or analytical requirements. Additionally, our regional manager provided senior level support, attending weekly planning meetings when significant changes occurred and monthly review meetings.

Most recently we have been working with Lynemouth Power Station and Mark One Consultants to move its historical asset and asbestos data to TEAMS (The Electronic Asbestos Management System) database. This will allow us to create an asbestos management plan for the future, as well as creating an online, paperless system.

We are pleased to be supporting Lynemouth Power Station in this and future works.

During a recent review by our Health and Safety consultant, it was noted that a Legionella Risk Assessment was necessary for our studio. We contacted Franks Portlock who undertook a full review of the premises and provided us with a greater understanding of the UK regulations and requirements. Sean Green supplied us with a detailed Legionella risk assessment and offered pragmatic advice and guidance on the procedures required to remain compliant, the whole process was seamless from start to finish.. Sean attention to detail and dedication was faultless throughout the entire process and it was a pleasure to work with both him and the team.

The de Ferrers Trust

Six months ago, we instructed Sean and the team at Franks Portlock for their services in Water Hygiene and we have been blown away by the service he has provided us. We have a number of different schools on board with him that range from full water hygiene monthly management, to RA's and Annual services. When tendering we found that Frank's Portlocks cost were similar to what we were already paying, however the level of detail that the contract covers far outweighs any previous contract we've ever had. The Monthly meetings have made a massive difference in ensuring that faults and risk items are dealt with promptly and appropriately. As the person who oversees compliance across our trust, I no longer have to worry about the water hygiene compliance in our schools that use Franks Portlock.
