WSP to acquire calibre, creating more job opportunities in Western Australia.

WSP Global has announced recently that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Calibre Professionals Services One Pty Ltd, and it’s subsidiary, Xstract Mining Consultants Pty Ltd.

Calibre, which is one of the leading providers of consulting and engineering services across the full asset life cycle, focused on rail, infrastructure, rehabilitation, and renewable projects supporting blue-chip mining clients.

The acquisition is expected to take place against the increasing demand for resources essential to the energy transition and the mining industry’s own need to decarbonize. Australian iron ore is essential to meeting the demand for steel which is predicted to double over the next 30 years, with steel requirements for onshore and offshore wind and solar projects alone likely to increase five-fold.

The combined entity will have more than 6,000 people across Australia, including over 1,300 resource industry experts in Western Australia.

WSP president and CEO Alexandre L’Heureux stated that the transaction will further position WSP to play a leading role in assisting with the green transition of the mining industry in Australia and globally. The combined business will further increase the technical capabilities and provide opportunities to serve as the partner of choice for mining companies with strong ESG commitments.

Calibre executive general manager Adrian Chapman also mentioned that Joining WSP will create a leading and highly technically capable firm, adding value to major projects beyond mine sites, and enabling them to bring WSP’s key ESG services to a wider client base.

The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions and is anticipated to close in the second quarter of 2023.
