CIMIC's Sedgman expands capability for energy transition with acquisition of Prudentia Engineering

Sedgman, a member of the CIMIC Group, has acquired engineering company Prudentia Engineering, expanding its presence in the growing chemical and energy industries which support the energy transition globally.

The acquisition enhances Sedgman’s existing critical minerals and mineral processing expertise in copper, high purity alumina, vanadium, lithium, cobalt, rare earths, uranium and nickel.

Sedgman will apply Prudentia Engineering’s expertise in hydrometallurgy to its global operations, increasing its capability for clients.

Prudentia Engineering (Prudentia Process Consulting Pty Ltd) will operate as Sedgman Prudentia and offer clients a comprehensive service, from consulting, feasibility studies, design, and delivery services on sustaining capital through to major brownfield and greenfield projects.

CIMIC Group Executive Chairman Juan Santamaria said: “Paired with Sedgman’s engineering, project delivery, construction, and facility operations capability, Sedgman Prudentia gains a unique market position and unlocks the potential to deliver larger mineral processing, energy, and chemicals projects.”

Sedgman Managing Director Grant Fraser said: “We welcome the Prudentia Engineering people to the team and look forward to working with them. Sedgman Prudentia strengthens our critical minerals, energy, and chemicals capabilities while complementing our existing expertise, so we can provide our clients with a broader service offering.”
