RSGx, specialists in mechanical and electrical construction and engineering, has acquired Perth based company Allied Power in a deal that will deliver unrivalled project expertise.

Together, RSGx and Allied Power can offer HV overhead and underground power services to the mining sector, having strong industry relationships with clients such as BHP, Fortescue, Rio Tinto, Bechtel, INPEX, Shell, Santos, AngloGold, West Gold, Newcrest, Mineral Resources, Glencore, and Newmont to name but a few

Allied Power is a privately-owned WA company who excel in the specialist field of powerline and transmission distribution, working predominantly in the remote mining sectors of Australia. It is one of the primary power line providers in WA and have forged an industry leading reputation for excellence in safety and performance.

They are experts in the disciplines of powerline design, procurement and engineering and work closely alongside energy giants such as Pacific Energy and EDL. Through innovation and collaboration Allied Power help to develop power solutions for solar, wind and battery projects in renewable sectors throughout Australia.

The acquisition allows Allied Power, which has been operating for more than 30 years, to combine its existing services with the broader services provided by RSGx.

RSGx delivers a broad range of integrated mechanical and electrical services nationally for the transport, energy, water and resources sectors.

It has expertise in engineering and advisory (including M&E bid support, High Voltage and Low Voltage distribution systems, ME&I and structural engineering), construction (M&E, instrumentation and controls, network and communications), commissioning (HV, LV, mechanical, instrumentation and controls), maintenance and operations (HV operations and maintenance, major shutdowns).

It can provide turnkey solutions, support site-specific activities or deliver stand-alone contracts.

RSGx is Sydney headquartered with a major office in Perth which oversees activity across WA, SA and the NT.

RSGx Regional Manager Michael O’Connell said acquiring Allied Power would add a capability that will complement those currently available within RSGx.

“Substantial private and public investment in power transmission infrastructure is required across Western Australia to meet decarbonisation targets so we see demand in this sector increasing considerably,” he said.

“Having the capability of Allied Power and its staff will enable us to provide an end-to-end power infrastructure solution, from generation, through distribution to the end user.

“Combining the two companies allows us to offer end-to-end project coverage including feasibility, procurement, design and engineering through to construction, pre-commissioning, commissioning and operations, resulting in greater efficiencies which represent overall cost savings for our clients.”

Allied Power Director Mick Hood said the companies were aligned across safety, people culture and service delivery.

“RSGx affords the Allied Power team significant capacity, both front office and back office, which will allow us to engage on bigger projects while maintaining our unparalleled track record of delivering a quality outcome to our clients.” he said.

“This is an exciting new phase for us but very much business as usual in terms of the first-class service we provide.”
