TÜV Rheinland is to acquire ABB’s UK technical engineering consultancy, part of ABB’s Energy Industries division. The acquisition will be integrated into TÜV Rheinland’s industrial services and cyber security business in the UK. The transaction is expected to close in Q2 of 2023.  

The combined business will establish a full-service offer to the high-hazard industries, by supporting customers in the energy transition and energy security with strategic growth of safety, risk and integrity management services. 

ABB’s UK technical engineering consultancy includes a network of subcontractors and associates and has around 160 people operating from two main sites in the northeast and northwest of England. It also includes a specialist team of technical experts who help global energy customers improve process safety, equipment and asset integrity, as well as technical design for new and existing industrial plants. 

‘ABB’s UK technical engineering consultancy will complement the existing risk, safety and integrity management services provided by TÜV Rheinland. Our aim is to build upon the longstanding customer relationships and trust that ABB and TÜV Rheinland have established in the UK over the last two decades,’ says Gareth Book, managing director at TÜV Rheinland UK.
