NPE provides specialty environmental services and water treatment solutions for large and complex dewatering and sewage bypass projects. Main customer segments include infrastructure construction and municipalities. The company is also specialized in dewatering solutions for mining connected to metals needed in electrification.
“NPE has strong market recognition, and great expertise,” said Andrew Walker, president of Atlas Copco’s Power Technique Business Area. “The acquisition will strengthen our presence in dewatering and water treatment, which is an area where needs are increasing due to climate change and more frequent flooding events. This is driving the need for fast response and specialty dewatering solutions.”
The company has 420 employees and in 2022 had revenues of approximately A$205 million (SEK1400 million).
When the purchase is finalized, the business will become part of the Specialty Rental Division within Atlas Copco’s Power Technique Business Area.
