Hyder Consulting has appointed Steve Groves as Head of Energy Networks. In this capacity, Groves will be in charge of developing the firm’s integrated engineering and environmental services proposition and lead its subsidiary Power Systems Project and Consultancy Services (PCS).
Hyder Consulting, an Arcadis company, is a UK design and engineering consulting firm that is specialised in the property, transport, utilities and environment sectors and investing in building skills and capabilities in the energy and resources sectors.
In line with its ambition to build on its profile in the high-voltage electrical engineering market through its subsidiary PCS, the firm recently appointed Steve Groves as its new Head of Energy Networks. Groves joins Hyder from Jacobs, a provider of technical, professional, and construction services, where he worked for almost 12 years and leaves as Director of Operations.
In his new capacity, Groves will lead PCS and develop the firm’s integrated engineering and environmental services proposition for the energy transmission and distribution market, aimed at meeting the needs of the firm’s clients. “Steve's experience and understanding of the market is just what we need as we plan to develop this area of our business. PCS has a strong profile in Scotland, and we aim to extend that knowledge and capability to our wider client-base,” comments Simon Bradley, Managing Director for Energy and SRM.
Commenting on his appointment, Groves says: “With the current investment in the energy market, there are a number of opportunities for Hyder and PCS to leverage our combined areas of expertise to benefit our key clients.”
