Energy  sector service group Glacier Energy Services confirmed the appointment of Jim McAleese as managing director of its newly-formed heat transfer division.

McAleese, 51, will lead Glacier's heat transfer repair and refurbishment services business, which was augmented with the acquisition of MSL Heat Transfer in late September, complementing existing group company Ross Offshore.

The appointment follows Glacier's recent restructure to focus on its companies' core capabilities delivering specialist services for energy infrastructure onsite in any global location, and at its workshops across the UK and in South East Asia.

In addition to heat transfer services, Glacier also provides onsite machining through Roberts Pipeline Machining and Site Machining Services; non-destructive testing (NDT), provided by Professional Testing Services; and weld overlay for pressure control equipment from Wellclad.

Scott Martin, executive chairman of Glacier Energy Services, says: "Jim is a well-known name in energy with an outstanding track record managing major international work portfolios and securing high-value new business, he is a superb acquisition for the group.

"His substantial experience, from engineer to senior executive at the head of large-scale global companies, is an asset as we work hard to achieve our growth plans – he knows what it takes to secure increased turnover and improve operational and safety performance, while managing a highly skilled, dynamic workforce."

Before joining Glacier, Jim McAleese, had a lengthy career with Alderley Systems Ltd, most recently as managing director, with responsibility for leading company activities across the international energy sector.

A chartered engineer and member of the Institute of Measurement and Control, he also led business development activity at Alderley, securing new business valued in excess of £20m.

Glacier Energy Services, formed in 2011, has a staff of 225, with group turnover for the financial year 2014 expected to exceed $48.19m.  Its businesses operate from industrial premises in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Dalgety Bay and Methil in Fife, Newcastle and Singapore.

The group supports operators and service companies on projects from the commissioning phase to full in-operations lifecycle of oil and gas platforms and vessels, windfarms and infrastructure in the energy and petrochemical industries.
