Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Brush, the UK producer of heavy generators, to provide engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) services for the development of a manufacturing facility in Changsu, Jiangsu Province, China.
Brush’s generators are used in the nuclear, thermal power, industrial and oil and gas industries. The Changsu plant will be the company’s first production facility in China and will primarily serve the Chinese market. It will be developed in two phases, with the first phase consisting of a 15,000 sq m single floor workshop and 1,500 sq m office area.
Paul Lengthorn, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “We are delighted that Brush has chosen Mott MacDonald to work on its first move into China. Our knowledge of the local market has allowed us to prepare the sufficient documents and technical data quickly, while our team has vast experience of working with international companies.”
“This project is especially challenging due to its tight schedule, with completion scheduled for only 16 months from the initial company registration,” Paul added.
The facility is due to be completed by the end of 2014. Brush have acquired land space for a potential second phase of development.
