Through our own staff and far-reaching network of corporate partners and professional associates, we provide scalable solutions ensuring that no challenge is too big or too small for us to tackle.

We offer our services as consultants or by executing projects in the environmental and energy sectors, as consulting engineers and engineering consultants.

EON Consulting focuses on infrastructure. As engineers our primary interest is the interaction between energy and the environment.  We are committed to improved operation and efficiency of new and existing plants, both for energy generation, power delivery and effluent and waste management.

We also focus on the development and deployment of clean energy such as renewables and nuclear. We focus on sustainability. We believe that our mission includes the optimisation of designs to ensure that we can use less energy and material to achieve the required results.

We pride ourselves on our technical pedigree, judgment and character along with our ability to both lead and work within large integrated teams.
