Global integrated solutions specialist business EnerMech has inked a series of new contracts in the Americas, including a second campaign with a major E&P operator in offshore Gulf of Mexico for nitrogen and leak testing.

Announcing its new business today (2nd September), the company said it has also been awarded essential pipework cleaning services, where its personnel will carry out hydroblasting, camera inspections, air blowing, and hot nitrogen services.

The company has also been awarded a number of other contracts that span the oil and gas, petrochemicals, maritime, construction and manufacturing industries.

On the new business, Joseph Lichon, EnerMech President of the Americas region, said, “This has been another fantastic few months for the Americas team, building on the momentum we are experiencing globally across the business since coronavirus restrictions began easing earlier this year.”

“It’s particularly pleasing to see the big strides we are making as we compete for new work in some of the most hazardous and challenging industries and being selected based on our proven safety record and ability to deliver efficient, reliable results.”

“In several instances, scopes have also widened as clients see first-hand how strong our skillsets are and the ease by which they can be diversified across projects.”

As a result of these new awards, the company, which employs over 3,500 worldwide and over 800 based in the Americas, has doubled its electrical team, and increased the number of mechanical pipefitters and NACE Inspectors. 

In addition to the new contract, nerMech has also appointed Rob Bleicher as its Vice-President of Business Development – Americas, to drive forward its strategic growth plans.

Bleicher has more than 30 years’ commercial experience, most recently in senior roles at KBR and CB&I. He has extensive experience in helping to secure and deliver domestic and international, billion-dollar LNG projects, large and small refining and petrochemicals industries. 

On the appointment, Lichon continued, “We are also excited to welcome Rob into our leadership team. His technical and commercial expertise is extremely valuable to EnerMech and will support our plans to increase traction in the energy and infrastructure sectors to expand our leading position in the Americas and globally.”
