Celebrating 30 great years!

This month we are celebrating 30 years of designing and delivering innovative engineering solutions for a wide range of clients across Ireland, the UK and Europe.

Project Design Engineers was started by our founding directors Seamus Murray and Colin Younge, back in October 1989.  They started Project Design Engineers with the vision of becoming a leading engineering design consultancy and it wasn’t long before this vision became a reality.  Starting with 3 clients and 3 projects, today we have completed work for over 370 clients, worked on over 4000 projects, totalling well over 1.5 million hours.

Reflecting on this exciting milestone our current managing director Adrian Watson had this to say;

“I have been lucky to have been part of the PDE family for 28 of the 30 years that we have been in business and it has been amazing to watch how far we have come. 

We have been involved in many exciting projects over the years, however the ones that stick out for me are the project we completed at the LSS Oil Terminal in Derry/Londonderry which involved transitioning a former brownfield site into a fully operational ship fed terminal and the design and build project we completed at the AFSC Oil Terminal in Foynes. 

More recently our involvement in renewable energy projects has been an exciting shift for the company, we completed four biomass boiler projects for prestigious distilleries in Scotland and managed the UK’s largest battery energy storage project.

We wouldn’t have made this milestone without our loyal clients, suppliers and staff, we are truly thankful for the long-lasting relationships we have been able to build and will continue to build over the years”. 

The last 30 years have been an exciting journey for Project Design Engineers and the next 30 promise to be just as exciting!  You can read more about our journey over the last 30 years here.
