Mechanical engineering group EnerMech has announced that general manager Niall Conlon has been promoted to director of its Australian operations, with Ciaran Hallinan taking over his role as general manager.
The promotion is in recognition of Conlon’s contribution to the strong growth of Australian operations following EnerMech’s 2013 acquisition of industrial services firm Vicon Services.
Hallinan is an energy, resources and infrastructure specialist with 20 years’ experience, who joins EnerMech from WDS where he was chief executive of the energy and infrastructure division.
“[Conlon’s] new role will focus on a strategy to promote further expansion by winning high value contract work,” said Doug Duguid, EnerMech’s CEO. “[Hallinan] brings with him a wealth of experience in the upstream and downstream oil, gas, mining and minerals sectors and will support Niall in ensuring EnerMech is competing in all the major oil and gas project tenders which are in the pipeline.”
UK-headquartered EnerMech has operations in seven Australian cities stretching from Perth to Gladstone, Darwin and Melbourne and employs more than 500 staff, with numbers expected to grow to more than 700 in the next year.
The company has operations in 20 countries and is represented in all of the global oil and gas hubs where it provides a broad range of mechanical services, including cranes and lifting, valves, hydraulics, industrial services, process, pipeline and umbilicals (PPU), equipment rental and training services.
EnerMech provides seven integrated business lines to the oil, gas and power industries and expects revenues in Australia to grow by more than 40% in the current year, with turnover exceeding US$111 million (A$150 million).
