Compressor service engineers play a part in keeping the UK’s lights on

Nick Taylor Service
It’s not just hospitals who have needed support from Atlas Copco over the last couple of months. Critical industries such as power generation, water and wastewater treatment, and the food and pharmaceuticals sectors are all reliant on compressed air to keep their plants running.

One such example is a large power station which has been working hard to ensure that the country is supplied with the electricity it needs – and Atlas Copco field service engineers have been working hard to ensure that the nine “ZT” oil-free compressors which supply its boilers don’t let them down. Because the power station is reliant on compressed air, it provided a letter to explain that Atlas Copco service engineers are essential workers and have permission to travel to site, in case they were questioned by police about their journey.

Nick Taylor and Ryan Higgins, Field Service Engineers at Atlas Copco Compressors, have spent quite a lot of time at the power station, performing the annual service contract work to take all the coolers off, clean and refit them, as well as some extra work to replace a couple of compressor elements before they started to fail. This type of ‘two-man job’ could have been rendered impossible because of social distancing. However, they were able to undertake the work safely together by following the customer’s and Atlas Copco’s stringent health & safety rules and risk assessment guidelines.

Asked how he feels about working on customer sites when many colleagues are safely working from home, Nick says: “I enjoy my job and I know that what I do is valuable to industry. We are now very used to wearing additional PPE and keeping our distance. Only a few contractors are allowed on site at a time and I can see that all of them are complying with the exact guidelines, so I don’t feel exposed. In fact, I feel safer going to site than going to the supermarket!”

We are thankful to Nick, Ryan and all our field service engineers, for their dedication to keeping our customers and industry running in challenging times.
