The three companies announced at the All Energy Show in Aberdeen that they were forming the collaborative network One Industrial, and were among a 13-strong delegation on the Invest Northern Ireland stand at the show.

The collaborative network, One Industrial, has been formed by three Northern Ireland specialist engineering companies to offer a turnkey service in the construction, installation and maintenance of renewable energy plants.

The collaboration between Axon Power and Control, Eurofab Structural Engineering, both Dungannon, and Pipesketch in Londonderry was announced at the All Energy Show in Aberdeen on 18th and 19th May. The three companies are among a 13-strong delegation on the Invest Northern Ireland stand at the show, one of Europe’s biggest in the renewable energy calendar.

Welcoming the collaboration, Tracy Meharg, Invest NI’s Managing Director of Innovation and Capability Development, said, “This is an important strategic initiative by three local companies which have identified the extent of new business opportunities particularly in renewable energy generation and have combined to maximise the potential of their extensive expertise and experience. The companies have teamed up to provide one accessible point of contact that will deliver end-to-end installations, commissioning, operations and maintenance.”

For One Industrial, John Donaghy, Managing Director of Axon Power, said: “We recognise how organisations benefit from working with one supplier to fulfil their engineering and industrial services, one contact for the plant owner, and one team of skilled engineers to deliver projects on time and on budget.

“The businesses in the One Industrial collaboration have almost 50 years experience in engineering services for the energy sector in the UK, Ireland and internationally. Together they offer a uniquely convenient and cost effective method for European companies to deliver their renewable energy projects anywhere in the UK or Ireland.

“Biomass power plants, for example, are one area of expertise, but our breadth of skills can be applied to almost any industrial build, from recycling and waste to energy plants, construction, mining, quarrying, oil and gas and pharmaceutical industries.

“It’s our combination of experience, knowledge and quality engineering that enables us to deliver fully compliant plants, built to exact specifications. Our services include project management, process pipework, fuel handling systems, control and automation, electrical services and operations and maintenance,” he added.

The three member companies are ISO 9001 certified and adhere to the strictest quality guidelines and have carried out a number of projects.

Axon Power designed and installed the automated controls for an incinerator bottom ash processing plant at Brentford. Eurofab engineered and installed a state-of-the-art pellet storage and distribution plant for a biomass plant for Forever Fuels in Devon. Pipesketch designed, fabricated and installed the pipework at the Deutzbank ICT Data Centre in London.
