Global mechanical engineering group EnerMech has announced general manager Niall Conlon has been promoted to Director of its Australian operations, with Ciaran Hallinan taking over his role as general manager.
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 A$150 million.
The promotion is in recognition of Niall's contribution to the strong growth of Australian operations following EnerMech's 2013 acquisition of industrial services firm Vicon Services.
His replacement as general manager is Ciaran Hallinan, an energy, resources and infrastructure specialist with 20 years' experience, who joins EnerMech from WDS Limited where he was chief executive of the firm's Energy and Infrastructure division.
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 chief executive officer, Doug Duguid, said: "Niall Conlon's appointment to Director acknowledges the significant contribution he has made in establishing EnerMech as a major player in executing complex oil and gas projects in Australia. His new role will focus on a strategy to promote further expansion by winning high value contract work for the delivery of smarter and safer integrated solutions.
"The appointment of Ciaran Hallinan as General Manager for Australia underlines the importance we place on this diverse and fast-growth market. He 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."
