Newcastle environmental firm bags new project overseas
Newcastle-based Earth & Marine Environmental Consultants (EAME), a small environmental consultancy specialising in emerging markets, has secured further project wins abroad in Iraq.
EAME has commenced nationwide multi-site environmental and social assessments of electrical distribution infrastructure, as part of a nationally strategic project.
Electrical power distribution is currently a key developmental objective in Iraq, which suffers major daily outages.
EAME’s managing director, Steve Rowan commented on the company’s success: “EAME has remained active in and committed to Iraq and these contracts further consolidate our position as key provider for environmental and social assessments in Iraq.
“The UK team will be supported by our local staff who we have trained and mentored for several years.”
This work follows a strong 2017/18 where EAME was active in the Iraqi water, wastewater and port sectors. The company has been active in Iraq since 2010 and has worked with a range of clients including international oil companies, funders, EPC contractors and developers on nationally strategic projects.
Despite the issues of working in volatile markets EAME has grown in size and turnover and has recently established a base in Guyana, South America.
