His cross sector background will assist EnerMech in extending its footprint in Australia’s fast expanding infrastructure sector while strengthening the business’s operations in LNG and traditional oil and gas industries.
He said: “The Australian LNG sector is entering the next phase where major plants are enhancing capacity through brownfield projects improvements, maintenance and shutdown optimisation. We have worked across all of the LNG facilities and have strong relationships with the operators and main contractors and this puts us in a strong position to be at the centre of this new cycle of investment.”
