International energy consultancy Xodus Group has announced that it signed an agreement to acquire North Fremantle-based Green Light Environmental.
International energy consultancy Xodus Group has announced the signing of an agreement to acquire North Fremantle-based Green Light Environmental.
Green Light was founded in 2012 by Petrina Raitt, who serves as managing director, and the company currently has eight environmental advisers and an operations manager.
UK-based Xodus also established its Perth office in 2012, and Business News understands it currently has 22 employees at its Perth operations.
In February, Xodus said it had grown its team in Perth by almost 50 per cent after a batch of new contract wins in the region over the past 12 months.
Ms Raitt will now be the environmental manager of Xodus’s Asia Pacific operations.
She also founded eBase, a cloud-based environmental impact assessment platform that aims to support more efficient, consistent and thorough EIA and project approvals.
Xodus said it would continue to utilise and develop eBase through its technology team.
Green Light specialises in statutory environmental approvals, including advice and preparation of applications, reporting and compliance management, and environmental impact assessments.
It counts Chevron, Woodside Petroleum, BP, Inpex and Santos among its clients.
Monetary details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Xodus Asia Pacific operations director Simon Allison said the company worked with Ms Raitt and her team on several projects during the past seven years.
“Therefore, we know that there is a synergy in delivering quality environmental services which are driven by operational performance and business requirements,” he said.
Ms Rait said joining Xodus provided Green Light with a larger platform for it to deliver a greater level of service for its clients.
“Xodus already has a strong environmental team including delivering metocean and modelling services, underwater noise and geospatial solutions, so we know we are joining a talented team,” she said.
