EnerMech Australia Gets Training Seal of Approval

Perth-based EnerMech Pty Ltd has been given the seal of approval by Australia’s National Training Information Service (NTIS) to deliver competency training in offshore crane operating.

The mechanical services company has been accredited as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in Western Australia and been endorsed to deliver the PMASUP305A (Operate Offshore Crane) competency standard.

NTIS had been developed by federal and state governments in Australia to vet and approve companies involved in providing training and competency services.

EnerMech also recently achieved ISO 9001:2008 status for its quality management system used throughout its international operations.

Ben Finlay, EnerMech’s regional director for Asia Pacific region, said: “This is a huge achievement for such a young company and shows our commitment to providing first class training solutions and further securing our place as the industry leader in Australia for crane and lifting services.”

Regional training manager for EnerMech, Grant Paterson, added: “Obtaining RTO status was a key part to delivering on our commitments to our clients in Australia of providing nationally recognised training and assessment services in addition to our existing courses.”

EnerMech specialises in the supply, maintenance and engineering of cranes, lifting and hydraulic equipment, rental of hand tools and zoned equipment and provision of training and specialist personnel to the energy industry.

Note to Editors

EnerMech Ltd was formed in April 2008 and offers a safer, more customer-focused, responsive service with lower costs in the mechanical services sector within the energy industry, while delivering a much greater level of engineering and technical support than competitors can offer.

The company specialises in the supply, maintenance and engineering of cranes, lifting and hydraulic equipment, rental of hand tools and zoned equipment and provision of training and specialist personnel to the energy industry.

With the acquisition of Specialist Maintenance Services Ltd and A1 Safety Training Consultants Ltd, EnerMech is now a leading international provider of offshore crane and lifting operations, crane personnel and safety training. EnerMech also has a significant presence in Norway following the acquisition of Bjørge ASA’s crane division in October 2008.

In April 2009 EnerMech extended its presence in the Middle East with the acquisition of UAE free zone companies Pavitt Energy Limited and Scotia Oilfield Trading FZE which has since been integrated in to the EnerMech group. Investment totaling £5.1 million ($7.5M) has been made in equipment stock rental, a new base in Ras al-Khaimah and existing facilities in Jebel Ali and Doha.

EnerMech employs 350 staff at its Aberdeen headquarters and bases in Great Yarmouth, Stavanger, Dubai, Qatar, Ras al-Khaimah, Singapore, Indonesia, China and Perth, Australia.

EnerMech’s five director-owners are backed by private equity firm Lime Rock Partners and together have in place a £30 million plus funding package to support organic growth and further acquisitions.
