TG Power Ltd operates and maintains the power station at RAF Fylingdales on behalf of the UK Ministry of Defence under a 25 year PFI contract to provide power and hot water. Situated in the North Yorkshire Moors, RAF Fylingdales is a critical component in the worldwide US and UK ballistic missile early warning and satellite tracking system which requires being operational at all times. As the station is not connected to the national grid, the onsite powerhouse is the only source of electrical supply which has to provide power within finely measured parameters 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The initial phase of the contract encompassed a major investment from Turner to modernise and upgrade the existing power station infrastructure which included the finance, design, installation, and commissioning of efficient gas engine generating sets and hot water boilers.
A key feature of the operation is the close working relationship that has been developed with the customer and wider stakeholders to ensure the continued availability of such a strategically important facility.
