Aberdeen-headquartered mechanical engineering group, EnerMech, has promoted its general manager Niall Conlon to Director of its Australian operations.
According to EnerMech, 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.
The company says that Conlon’s 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.
EnerMech notes that its operations in seven Australian cities employ more than 500 staff, with numbers expected to grow to more than 700 in the next year.
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.”
