MWH appoints expert in Fieldbus Control Systems

Posted: Thursday 17th September 2009

Environmental engineering company and water expert MWH has appointed a new Principal Electrical Engineer specialising in Fieldbus control systems.

Mark Cargill, 57, will be based at MWH’s Solihull office in the West Midlands working primarily on MWH’s projects with Severn Trent Water. He joins MWH after working for Enpure (formerly Purac) for 17 years mainly on installing major water and waste water treatment works for clients including Yorkshire Water, North West Water (now part of United Utilities), Anglian Water, Dwr Cymru (Welsh Water) and Astra Zeneca.

Mark joins MWH as a specialist in Fieldbus systems, in particular Profibus. Fieldbus systems are used to operate and control all types of industrial plants from treatment works to factories. The technology can reduce cabling costs by 30% with knock on effects in reduced civil works. Operating costs are also reduced as the intelligent units can be used to monitor equipment performance, helping to ensure that plant maintenance is carried out before failure, which decreases plant down time and reduces emergency response costs.

Mark Cargill said: “I am extremely pleased to join MWH at such an exciting time. I am looking forward greatly to helping develop our business, especially in my specialist areas, on behalf of Severn Trent Water and MWH’s other clients.”

Commenting on Mark’s appointment Richard Armitage, head of MWH’s Solihull office said: “Mark’s skills complement our existing areas of expertise, but he also brings his own specialisms to MWH that will help us deliver more value to our clients.”

Mark spent 11 years in the Merchant Navy, progressing to Senior Electrical Officer. He then worked in the glass processing industry, prior to moving into the water industry. He has made presentations at a number of prestigious conferences including Fieldcomms International in Boston, USA, the Institution of Engineering and Technology and Profibus International UK. He is a committee member of Profibus UK and a part-time lecturer on Profibus at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Automation Systems Centre (ASCent).
