EC&M magazine featured this photo, saying, "Mott MacDonald provided engineering services for the 725MW CPV Woodbridge Energy Center, including a 230kV switchyard and transmission line."
Mott MacDonald's investment in the electrical engineering sector is truly paying off. EC&M (Electrical Design, Construction, and Maintenance) magazine now ranks Mott MacDonald the third largest electrical designer in the United States, with a global electrical revenue of $184 million for 2017.
EC&M quoted Group Marketing Manager Don Flood as saying, "Even with what may be considered heavily civil-oriented work, there's a bigger electrical component now." The magazine noted that electrical design teams are deeply engaged in our Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel project, a sign that transit projects are more broad-based in their engineering demands.
In North America, the EICA (Electrical engineering, Instrumentation, Controls, and Automation) group led by Anthony McGinn grew from 40 staff in 2013 to just under 100 staff in 2018, an organic growth of 150% in only five years. Along with this expansion, we have gained business in new areas of expertise by adding 55 specialist areas in electrical engineering areas. Forty-two of these are currently filled with subject matter experts.
EICA's growth strategy has included active marketing, hiring and/or training multiple project managers, and pursuing larger projects. Cross-sector collaboration has been vastly improved and utilization performance has been increased by as much as 15%. Our team is well positioned for further growth in sectors including highways, roads, bridges, electric grids, water and wastewater, airports, and rail systems.
