Control and instrumentation business acquired

Friday, 19 September, 2008

Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) has added strength to its power team and its overall service offering to its energy market area clients with the acquisition of Sigma Energy Solutions’ Control and Instrumentation (C&I) business.

John Bergantino, PB general manager markets energy, said Sigma’s capability was a welcome addition to the PB team at a time when the number of major power projects the company is working on is rapidly increasing.

“Sigma is strong in control and instrumentation and is highly respected in the industry,"  Bergantino said.

“PB clients — particularly power generators, water processing plants, mining projects and mineral refineries — will benefit from the Sigma team’s expertise and experience.

“This acquisition includes not only the transfer of a significant number of key Sigma staff, but also intellectual property dating back to the 1980s and the novation of Sigma’s C&I contracts.

“PB will leverage off Sigma’s work in power stations in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia."
