Labour supply

Z-Tech’s labour supply department provide assistance to the power industry. Our technicians and engineers work within power stations, CHPs and other power generation plants. We can help supply labour from our core team of Electricians, Control and Instrument Technicians and also find solutions for any situation. We have resources who have extensive knowledge within the power industry and have full training in all health and safety aspects of any role. 

Z-Tech work with Beamex Calibration equipment

Z-Tech work with Beamex, a leading company for providing calibration equipment for calibrating your onsite assets. We are able to make Beamex affordable for smaller sites: as well as reducing the costs of the system, our highly trained calibration technicians remove the need for in house training.

We are using Beamex Mc5 and Mc6 Multifunction calibrators on site to accurately calibrate instrumentation; we then upload this to the Beamex Software Centre for reporting and tracking assets. In turn this will provide condition status of assets and predict possible failure/replacement. Please contact us for more information. 

ATEX

The power industry is an intense and demanding environment where any shutdown or outage has to be planned and calculated. These planned outages allow for full detailed inspections to be completed when on normal days equipment would be in operation and a visual inspection is all that can be achieved. Z-Tech's inspectors can be easily incorporated into a planned outage programme and complete inspections and remedials saving future costly breakdowns.

When unplanned outages arise our inspectors can be called upon to assist with fault finding and rectification within potentially hazardous areas at a moment’s notice. All our engineers hold their CCNSG’s as standard.

Whether the source of supply be gas or coal, our inspectors are qualified and competent to complete the necessary inspections, remedials and installations in a timely and efficient manner ensuring down time is kept to a bare minimum. Find our more about ATEX.

"Z-Tech has proven a professional and technical approach to delivery on our automation projects. This has resulted in a long-term business relationship built upon good service, project delivery and trust."
