EnerMech strengthens position in Americas with significant multi-sector contracts and new senior BD hire
02 September 2021
Global integrated solutions specialist business EnerMech has secured a raft of significant new business in the Americas. The multiple sector awards span the oil and gas, petrochemicals, maritime, construction and manufacturing industries, demonstrating the firm’s versatility to support new and existing clients with its wide range of engineering and technical expertise.
The new contracts include a second campaign with a major E&P operator in offshore Gulf of Mexico for nitrogen and leak testing on a third of its installations, and delivering dynamic commissioning, leak testing, bolting and torquing services for a brownfield platform in offshore Mexico.
In Guyana, the team has won essential pipework cleaning services, where its personnel will carry out hydroblasting, camera inspections, air blowing, and hot N2 services. The firm has also been awarded a pre-commissioning project for a new FPSO being built for an operator in the region.
A major plastics manufacturing facility in Texas has also chosen EnerMech to carry out pre-operational engineering, procedure development, as well as provide HSE/QA & ITP and cleaning plans.
And under its Americas’ union entity, ME&I Construction Services, the team will deliver additional services with a well-established US based engineering, procurement and construction company supporting a major petrochemicals plant which processes ethane from shale gas.
As a result of these new awards, the company, which employs over 3,500 worldwide and over 800 based in the Americas, has doubled its electrical team, and increased the number of mechanical pipefitters and NACE Inspectors. EnerMech has also appointed Rob Bleicher as its Vice President of Business Development – Americas, to drive forward its strategic growth plans.
Mr. Bleicher has more than 30 years’ commercial experience, most recently in senior roles at KBR and CB&I. He has extensive experience in helping to secure and deliver domestic and international, billion-dollar LNG projects, large and small refining and petrochemicals industries.
EnerMech President of the Americas region Joseph Lichon said: "This has been another fantastic few months for the Americas team, building on the momentum we are experiencing globally across the business since coronavirus restrictions began easing earlier this year. It’s particularly pleasing to see the big strides we are making as we compete for new work in some of the most hazardous and challenging industries and being selected based on our proven safety record and ability to deliver efficient, reliable results. In several instances, scopes have also widened as clients see first-hand how strong our skillsets are and the ease by which they can be diversified across projects.
"We are also excited to welcome Rob into our leadership team. His technical and commercial expertise is extremely valuable to EnerMech and will support our plans to increase traction in the energy and infrastructure sectors to expand our leading position in the Americas and globally.”
