  1. Requirements

    Dublin-based company Utility Operations and Maintenance Services Ltd (UOMS) provides operating and maintenance services to Dublin Bay Power Station. Responsible for managing a major overhaul at the power station, they required office and welfare accommodation for the 12 week duration of the project.

    With tight deadlines and site access issues, UOMS needed a turnkey solution for the supply and management of the accommodation to minimise disruption.

  2. Solution

    Following a strict tendering process, Portakabin was chosen to supply a total of 49 buildings from its anti-vandal range – tough, secure, galvanised steel buildings designed specifically for the most exposed and demanding sites.

    Dave Carson, Technical Services Manager at UOMS, explains how the process worked for them: “In the lead-in to the overhaul, power station staff were busy preparing for the maintenance works whilst still operating the plant, so disruption to operations and drawing on staff resources were not an option. Having Portakabin come in and provide full site services and total project management, including design, helped us greatly.

    ”Accommodation included open-plan office space, partitioned offices, meeting rooms, storage, canteen, plus accommodation unit, shower unit, toilet/wash units, changing/drying rooms, and a computer based training room with furniture and appliances.

    Dave continues: “The quality and size of all products met with our requirements, along with the provision of additional materials such as furniture and electrical appliances, and the utility services such as electrical connections and plumbing.““I’d like to thank Portakabin for the professional way in which the team managed and implemented the recent outage cabin contract here. Our priority is safety, and you and your sub-contractors showed this to be your priority too, resulting in zero safety incidents. We look forward to working with you again in the future.”
