Mott MacDonald has won The Queen’s Award for Enterprise for outstanding achievement in International Trade – its third Queen’s Award for international performance in nine years.

Despite a downturn world-wide in the energy sector, Mott MacDonald’s energy business is flourishing. With a turnover of £43.2m, the company is busy on a number of large projects including the £500m Umm Al Nar combined cycle gas-fired power and water plant in Abu Dhabi, major expansion projects at Aluminium Bahrain’s smelter in Bahrain and DUBAL’s aluminium plant in Dubai plus the 800MW Arrubal combined cycle power plant in Spain. The company is also providing technical advisory services to international lenders on projects in many countries including Brazil, Mexico, Turkey, Morocco and Algeria while in the USA it has formed an association with RW Beck to promote its services in transmission and distribution.

Martin Hornsby, managing director of the company’s energy business, is delighted with the award and feels it highlights the achievements the company has realised across all its key sectors including energy. “With the International Energy Authority suggesting that there will be US$16 trillion spent on energy developments over the next 30 years there is plenty of scope for us to expand and help meet the ever growing demand for electricity around the world and thereby continue the success demonstrated by this latest Queen’s Award,” he said.

Mike Blackburn, Mott MacDonald’s chairman, said: “This award is testament to our staff’s commitment and resolve in meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations. As we expand our contribution in sectors ranging from building and education through to health and transportation, our global company values of progress, respect, integrity, drive and excellence propel our approach to enhancing our own business as well as that of our customers.”
