Newsprinters is part of the global newspaper manufacturing empire, News Corporation, which operates three vast press halls in Glasgow, Liverpool and London.

Business critical service provision

T-SQUARED has been working with News Corporation since before 2007 when they commissioned T-SQUARED to complete an HVAC installation at their Glasgow production facility. Following the success of the HVAC installation works, T-SQUARED was appointed to provide Facilities Services at their new Eurocentral site after their incumbent contractor failed to meet performance level expectations.

As a result of providing successful Facilities Services at Eurocentral, T-SQUARED was appointed to provide Facilities Services at their flagship facility at Broxbourne, north of London.

The role of our Facilities Services team

T-SQUARED provides business-critical Facilities Services to ensure production availability of 100%. This vital service requires the following input from T-SQUARED at the Eurocentral and Broxbourne sites:

  • On-site team of 20 engineers 24/7
  • Back up from local office mobile division in Basingstoke
  • Support from Head Office
  • Helpdesk support from Head Office Chartered Engineers

Success with this client is due to the high levels of service and expertise offered by T-SQUARED, in addition to sound knowledge of Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) operations.

Energy Management

‘Hot off the press’ is a literal term. The energy cost which is associated with the production of each newspaper is significant and is a figure which is used as a benchmark across all 3 sites.

Maximising the use of free cooling, reducing fan and pump speeds and monitoring chiller COP are examples of present initiatives in the aim to reduce energy bills by six-figure sums. Providing the correct environment at the correct cost can only be achieved if the complex dynamics in the psychrometrics in the process are clearly understood.

T-SQUARED Chartered Engineers have worked closely with the Newsprinters Team over a three year period to move towards these goals, however there is still considerable work to be undertaken in order to meet these targets.
