Three60 Energy has bolstered its engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPC&C) division with a new senior appointment.
Gareth Broxton joins the energy services firm as engineering director, bringing with him almost two decades of experience in the upstream and midstream oil and gas sector.
Tasked with a global remit, he will be responsible for “technical assurance” and “customer focused delivery”.
Mr Broxton will play a “critical role” in managing and developing the group’s multi-disciplined engineering team to meet growing demand from operators for fit-for-purpose solutions that support a low carbon future, Three60 said.
Alasdair Smith, managing director of Three60’s EPC&C services, said: “Gareth brings an impressive technical track record in multi-discipline engineering and project management. He has already demonstrated strong alignment with our values of integrity, ownership, challenge and collaboration.
“With a natural ability to develop strong relationships with colleagues and customers alike, and delivering impressive technical solutions to address industry needs, he is ideally suited to the role. I am looking forward to working with Gareth as he further strengthens our engineering offering, and supports our future growth as a result.”
A chartered engineer and fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Mr Broxton has worked across the full asset lifecycle, from front end engineering and design (FEED) through to decommissioning.
He joins Three60 from Aberdeen-firm Wood, where he held a number of senior technical and project management roles across the UK, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
Throughout his career, Mr Broxton has supported major operators – including Shell, Repsol Sinopec, EnQuest, TAQA and TotalEnergies, formerly Total – to deliver key EPC&C projects.
Commenting on his appointment, he said: “I am thrilled to join Three60 Energy having followed the success of the business for many years. I have been impressed by the team’s unwavering dedication to quality and responsiveness, which is embedded in the culture of the business, and is reflected in the elevated level of customer focus.
“It is an exciting time to join as the company continues to evolve and has very ambitious growth targets in the next three to five years. As well as managing a highly skilled multi-disciplined engineering team, I am looking forward to working with a growing customer base to help them solve their engineering challenges.
“There’s a real opportunity to make a difference. To achieve the ambitious net zero targets requires a significant reduction in carbon emissions, and the future energy mix will include renewables such as solar, onshore and offshore wind, and hydrogen.
“The acceleration of both emission reduction and renewables projects will require the right technical solutions and engineering expertise to deliver at scale. We will strengthen THREE60 Energy’s already strong engineering offering so we can support our customers on their energy transition journey, and help them embrace a low carbon future.”
