EnerMech Focus On International Growth With Two Senior Exec Appointments

Global integrated engineering service provider EnerMech is targeting further international growth with two senior management appointments in the US and UK.

Former senior officer of helicopter transportation company Bristow Group, Mark Duncan, has been appointed to the role of senior vice president of EnerMech’s Americas region.


Mark has worked in a variety of international management roles for ABB, Halliburton, KBR and Subsea7 and while at Bristow Group oversaw global operations which generated annual turnover in excess of $2 billion.

Based in Houston, Mark will be responsible for driving the continued profitable growth of EnerMech businesses throughout the Americas region. In the first three months of 2018, the team has already added contracts in the US market worth more than $30 million, including workscopes at six LNG and petrochemical construction sites.

Colin Smith has joined EnerMech as technical director from a leading global energy company where he was engineering consultant and project manager. With more than 35 years industry experience in senior technical and management roles with KBR, Amec, CNR and Marathon Oil, he will be responsible for driving the expansion of EnerMech’s Electrical & Instrumentation (E&I) division.

In response to client demand for a more focused integrated services offering, EnerMech made its entry into the E&I sector in January 2017 with the acquisition of EPS Group Australia, which provides a range of specialist electrical and instrumentation services to the Australian LNG, infrastructure, power and defence markets. 

Colin will focus on widening EnerMech’s E&I expertise into the UK and across its other international locations, including the US where the business is already seeing some early successes. 

EnerMech chief executive officer, Doug Duguid, said: “The Americas is an important market where last year we doubled revenues to over $85 million and have kick-started 2018 with contract awards of more than $30 million. Mark Duncan is a first-class business leader with a proven track record at the highest level and he will be central to maximising further growth as we consolidate our position in the US LNG, petrochemical and downstream sectors, and further expand domestically and internationally across the Americas region.

“Our past record of working on Australia’s largest LNG projects has proved a solid foundation for repeating that success in the Americas and we are now providing a combination of mechanical, E&I and engineering services across six LNG sites in the GOM and East Coast regions.”

Mr Duguid added that Colin Smith’s experience in asset management would assist EnerMech in rolling out its eMERge initiative – a partnership with BHGE and PDI – which supports E&P operators to maximise the recovery of oil and gas reserves.

He added: “Colin will be based in Aberdeen but will be responsible for driving the expansion of our E&I offering globally and will be the overall technical authority for this business line. His experience in asset management will also prove invaluable in our move towards providing our customers with integrated maintenance and inspection scopes.

“Both appointments underpin our strategic objectives for the continued development of the EnerMech brand as we widen our offering in our home and international markets. Our acquisition of EPS, and more recently of inspection and integrity specialist MInteg, demonstrates our commitment to providing a suite of integrated services which fit the requirements of our clients in the energy and industrial sectors.”
