Bringing fresh insight and enthusiasm
EnerMech recruits specialist for European role
An oil and gas asset specialist with more than 20 years’ experience working for major operating companies has been appointed as EnerMech’s European regional director.
Ross McHardy (pictured) will be responsible for all UK and Norwegian activities at the Aberdeen-headquartered integrated engineering services firm, which expects to double European turnover from £84m to more than £170m over the next four years.
Mr McHardy was previously responsible for safety performance and production delivery on TAQA Bratani’s Harding assets and held a wider strategic role which oversaw engineering and project delivery across central north sea assets. Prior to this he was part of EnQuest’s Aberdeen leadership team where he was actively involved in shaping the company’s strategic development and core values.
EnerMech chief executive officer, Doug Duguid, said: “Our strategy is to extend our offshore oil and gas offering to cover the full life-of-field of assets, to strengthen our integrated maintenance and inspection services, and further expand our mechanical and electrical provision to offshore sectors, such as downstream, power, utilities and defence.
“Ross’s experience in senior executive roles with major operators will be an important asset in helping us to better understand the problems faced by our clients and will be key to defining how we enhance service deliver and make a genuine difference to clients’ operations.
“His collaborative leadership style will bring a fresh insight and enthusiasm, as we expand our business by supporting the industry’s stated objective of maximising economic recovery.”
Mr McHardy said: “After spending more than 20 years on the operator side managing assets and delivering engineering projects, I hope I can transfer that knowledge to assist EnerMech as it continues to disrupt the traditional ways of executing turnkey projects.”
