Aberdeen's SSI Energy agrees tie-up to offer Covid-19 testing at critical sites

The partnership will combine SSI Energy’s range of Covid-19 screening and testing services with Texo Accommodation’s flexible, modular buildings, which are described as offering high-quality, rapidly deployed welfare facilities.

SSI Energy has developed screening and testing services delivered by qualified medical personnel, including the Covid-19 Rapid testing kit. This detects certain antibodies, revealing if a person has had coronavirus and has since recovered and takes ten minutes to complete.

The coronavirus screening stations will be targeted at sites of critical national infrastructure such as ports, airports and heliports, logistics centres and major construction sites where people are required to go to work to deliver essential services in the UK.

Jules Rawles, director at SSI Energy, which has an office in Aberdeen, said: “There is a clear need to ensure the safety of all people who are required to go to work, and screening and testing is an essential part of this. The facilities required to offer this service are best offered outside of the premises, which is why this partnership is particularly effective.”

Texo Accommodation MD Richard Lamb said: “The SSI Energy/Texo modular coronavirus screening centre provides a truly flexible solution for facilities where essential workers need to come and go.”
