With our network of industry and energy experts, WSP offers global experience combined with a local presence. We have a strong track record of successful projects in many subsectors – pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food and beverages, chemical, bioenergy, industrial energy efficiency and mining – and specialists in many countries around the world. Our wide-ranging client base includes large global organisations and niche or local industry or energy companies, and we can enable them to become both more efficient and more sustainable, whatever their field or the scale of their operations.
The Global Industry and Process Engineering Network at WSP
We know that our clients need experts who actively understand specific industry or energy processes and what is actually happening within the industrial or energy plant. This knowledge is at the core of the Global Industry and Process Engineering Network we have established across the group. Whether a power utility or energy company is investing in a biomass-fuelled plant, a thermal gasification plant or a plant producing biogas via anaerobic digestion, it is important that the consultant has a practical knowledge of the latest technologies. The same goes for any industrial client, irrespective of sector.
WSP can bring in expertise from across the group in many specialist competencies, from pharmaceuticals to mining to chemical, food or wood processing. We can provide services from the early stages of a project, including strategic studies, concept design and analysis of the best way to reach productivity targets, all the way through to detailed design. We can also assist the client at every stage of engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contracts, as the owner’s engineer, in developing safety standards or in buying equipment packages.
WSP Industry around the world
Our specialists are based in the UK, Australia, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, South Africa and China. Through our Global Industry and Process Engineering Network, we are able to better collaborate and identify opportunities where we can offer full-phase services. On a recent Swedish project for a major pharmaceutical company, WSP CEL in the UK provided specialist process expertise, while the Swedish offices delivered construction design, electrical, and heating and ventilation engineering services.
Meanwhile, a Swedish food processing company selected WSP to deliver a new plant in China because of our industry expertise in both countries. These are just two examples of the many projects we are delivering around the world. As a global consultancy company, we are big enough to work for global companies wherever their operations are based, while our local expertise makes us a strong choice for regional industry and energy clients.
