Global engineering consultancy PD&MS Group has beefed up its green credentials with an acquisition which is expected to create 75 jobs around the UK.
The Aberdeen company said it had snapped up Glasgow-based specialist engineering firm Synergie Environ Limited (SEL) for an undisclosed sum.
PD&MS hailed it as a key move for helping its clients achieve net-zero targets, while supporting energy transition in the North Sea.
SEL’s innovative carbon emissions-reducing technology has won it a string of industry awards.
The company was founded in 2009 by managing director Uisdean Fraser, a former head of waste at Western Isles Council.
For more than a decade SEL has been instrumental in cutting carbon consumption and cost across industries such as power generation and storage, pharmaceuticals, waste and sustainable material and transportation.
During this time it has supported more than 500 businesses –resulting in an estimated cumulative carbon reduction impact in excess of one million tonnes of CO2.
PD&MS will provide additional engineering resources, project management and
site construction support, allowing the central belt business to target larger-scale engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning campaigns, as well as supporting SEL on larger turnkey opportunities across the growing cleantech sector.
The 75 new hires are expected to join the group in various UK locations over the next year.
