Emergency Call out for PMP’ Rope Access Team

PMP were called by The William Tracey Group to an emergency at St Abbs, Scotland, where PMP’s Rope Access Team were to investigate and repair a leaking foul outfall system which had been spotted on a local outfall pipe, half way up a cliff face, making conventional access impossible.

Using a tested A-frame for rope access, the PMP technicians rigged their ropes and safely abseiled down the cliff, to the repair area. At the point of the leak the team discovered a manhole chamber which was overflowing. They removed the cover to find the downstream pipe was blocked but were able to remove the blockage and release the flow in a operation that lasted under 2 hours.

In house workshops allow PMP to undertake bespoke engineering projects, manufacturing components and fixtures. Decking, guards and railings are also fabricated and installed at water treatment works and reservoirs, and ensure their skills are constantly refreshed and developed by investing in new methods. PMP also have specialist knowledge in confined space working and joint repair, and often devise tailor made solutions for more unusual projects.

PMP has thorough expertise in confined space and rope access work together with a well earned reputation for fast response in emergency call-outs and is always keen to develop skills and innovate.
