SYSTRA ANZ has announced the acquisition of Bamser, an Australian based infrastructure advisory firm providing multi-disciplinary services to the transport, utilities, mining and energy sectors.
The transaction boosts SYSTRA’s position as a leading global player in complex tunnelling, coming after the 2021 acquisition of SWS, a leading tunnelling design firm based in Italy.
Alana Newbrook, CEO, SYSTRA ANZ, said:
“As we look to continue the growth of our cities and move to a net zero future, tunnelling provides a solution to enable mass transit along with providing opportunities for energy storage and creation through dams, pumped hydro and trenchless projects. We are excited to further bolster our global offering in complex engineering solutions and add to our global expertise in bridges and tunnels with the acquisition of Bamser.”
“With a large pipeline of major infrastructure projects to be delivered, and significant skills shortage in the tunnelling space, our clients and partners will benefit from our expanded service offering, deepening our global leadership in underground engineering and bringing it to the ANZ market at a time when most needed.”
With offices in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, Bamser have delivered city shaping projects extensively across Australia and into Asia.
Tim Brown, Director, Bamser, said:
“We’ve been involved in some of the largest infrastructure projects in Australia and overseas and look forward to adding our expertise to one of world’s leading engineering and consulting groups, specialised in public transport and mobility solutions.”
