px Group announce expansion plans across North America

px Group has announced ambitious growth plans for North America, bringing its sustainability expertise to industry throughout the region.

North America is currently facing energy security challenges and px Group will be focused on empowering industry to bring momentum to their decarbonization plans.

The px Americas team will be headed by Lorcan O Carroll and will bring focused project delivery and Operations & Maintenance expertise to a range of sectors including Energy Intensive Industries, chemical parks, energy ports and critical energy infrastructure.

With extensive capability in engineering, commissioning, advanced manufacturing and technical advisory the team’s specialist end-to-end services will support industrial partners to drive sustainability, achieve predictable performance and comply with regulatory requirements.

Strategic bases in Houston and Calgary will also give the team the best possible resource capability across North America, whilst also leveraging its global engineering community to bring the right solutions to complex projects.

The group already has experience in North America, delivering engineering and material handling systems for the Port of Miami tunnel scheme and for major salt and potash projects in Saskatoon, Halifax and Ontario, as well as a food waste to renewable energy project in California.

The Americas team will also leverage and deploy the group’s hydrogen expertise following the recent acquisition of hydrogen engineering specialists LIFTE H2 and the recent partnership with HYDS Hydrogen Solutions which focuses on developing, building and operating green hydrogen production plants.

Geoff Holmes, CEO of px Group, said: “I am excited to be announcing our ambitious growth plans for North America.

“We have a strong legacy of operating and managing highly complex strategic assets and we will utilize this expertise to help our partners in the region deliver on their sustainability ambitions.”

Lorcan O Carroll, President px Americas, adds: “Governments across North America have introduced a range of initiatives to grow the economy and accelerate the development of green energy, sustainable manufacturing hubs and the use of alternative fuels, as well supporting decarbonization and emission reduction goals within existing industrial assets.

“We are now in a critical period of the sustainability journey where industry needs to build their strategy for reducing emissions and complying with changing regulatory requirements.

We are excited to be expanding into this region bringing our operational and project expertise to help our clients realize their decarbonization ambitions and transition towards a sustainable future.”
