Belfast electrical firm Powerteam announces rebrand

By Audrey Watson

Electrical design firm Powerteam has rebranded after merging with the VINCI Energies - specialists in electrical power generation and transmission.

The Belfast company will now operate as Omexom UK and ROI, and will design, supply, and construct high-voltage electrical infrastructure solutions and specialise in the construction and refurbishment of electrical substations and overhead lines. Powerteam's 230-strong workforce now joins the Omexom network which trades in more than 40 countries worldwide.

The company has also moved to new 5,000sq ft premises at Old Channel Road in east Belfast. DUP MP Gavin Robinson said it was a "very positive announcement for east Belfast, and for Northern Ireland as a whole".

Rochdi Ziyat, chief executive of VINCI, said Powerteam had more than doubled its turnover from £20m in 2009, to more than £50m in 2014.

"Over the last number of years, Powerteam has established a growing portfolio of clients across the UK and Ireland which includes SSE, Northern Powergrid and Electricity Supply Board, generating annual turnover in excess of £55m.

"While clients will continue to deal with the team they already know and trust to deliver the highest quality of service, the Omexom team in Belfast now benefits from the support and expertise of the 12,000 specialists within the Omexom network," he said.
