Specialist medical support company, SSI Energy, has forged a strategic partnership with Texo Accommodation, part of Texo Group of companies, to deliver modular Coronavirus screening stations in the UK.
The partnership will combine SSI Energy’s range of Covid-19 screening and testing services with Texo Accommodation’s range of flexible, modular buildings which offer high-quality, rapidly deployed welfare facilities.
SSI Energy has developed screening and testing services delivered by qualified medical personnel, which includes the Covid-19 Rapid testing kit. This detects IgG and IgM antibodies, which detects if a person has had coronavirus and has since recovered and takes 10 minutes to complete.
The SSI Energy/Texo modular 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.
The modular concept is designed and manufactured by Texo Accommodation partner, ELA Container, the German modular building specialist. ELA has delivered a number of placements of modular systems in the UK and Europe to support customers during the Covid19 pandemic.
Jules Rawles, Director at specialist medical support company, SSI Energy, 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.”
Richard Lamb, Managing Director of Texo Accommodation, said: “The situation around working practices and the pandemic has been fast moving and requirements on how to work safely have been changing just as quickly.
“This partnership reflects the need to provide robust and accurate screening and testing to prevent the spread of Covid-19, while also meeting requirements for social distancing and general welfare. Clearly people having to stand and wait outside is suboptimal. The SSI Energy/Texo modular Coronavirus screening centre provides a truly flexible solution for facilities where essential workers need to come and go.”
