Mott MacDonald acquires Mouchel’s gas pipeline business

Engineering, management and development consultancy Mott MacDonald is pleased to announce that it has acquired Mouchel Energy Ltd, which has particular expertise in the UK gas sector. Mott MacDonald is a global leader in the energy sector and bringing Mouchel Energy on board will give the Group a strong base in the UK gas pipeline business which it will develop and expand as a centre of expertise to benefit clients worldwide.

Mouchel Energy is based in Hinckley in Leicestershire and provides engineering design consultancy to the gas and wider energy sector. It specialises in providing innovative solutions that help clients to deliver a safe, efficient and affordable supply of energy in the UK and increasingly around the globe. Formerly known as Gas Experts Limited, the company joined Mouchel in 2003. It has 50 fulltime staff and enjoys a high level of repeat business with longstanding clients particularly National Grid for whom it provides an ongoing service maintaining and upgrading the UK national gas transmission network.

Mott MacDonald has more than 1400 staff in its global oil, gas and petrochemicals team engaged in developing, designing and providing project management services for onshore and offshore facilities and providing leading expertise on cross border supply issues and alternative technologies. Projects include engineering, procurement and construction management services around the world and advising the EU, government ministers and global oil companies on energy strategy, development and supply security.

Commenting on the acquisition Mott MacDonald’s chairman Keith Howells said: “Mouchel’s gas pipeline team shares our culture of professional excellence, innovation and environmental sustainability. This acquisition means we will be able to offer our clients an enhanced suite of capabilities embracing all areas of the energy sector and all facets of project development.”

Colin Brewster, divisional director of Mouchel Energy, is equally enthusiastic about the opportunities that the deal will bring. “Having access to Mott MacDonald’s global network and resources enables us to jointly offer our customers a more comprehensive service. For our staff, it provides increased opportunities to work on major multidisciplinary projects, which are a particular forte of Mott MacDonald.”
