H&MV Engineering Wins AWS Horizon Award

Construction News Image
Limerick's H&MV Engineering has scooped the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Horizon Award at a ceremony in Dublin.

H&MV Engineering was awarded for its design and construction solutions across data centres, wind farms and solar and battery projects. In its second year, the AWS Horizon Award sets out to reward businesses that have contributed to enhancing employment in Ireland, exporting their expertise or products to diverse regions and markets, or making a constructive impact on the broader reputation of the cloud infrastructure sector.

In 2023, a study conducted by Indecon International Economic Consultants (Indecon) offered insights into the extent of investment made by AWS in Ireland since 2012. It showcased the beneficial ripple effects of an AWS data centre on local communities. According to the report, AWS has boosted economic output in Ireland by over €11.4 billion since 2012, with nearly €2.4 billion contributed in additional economic output in 2022 alone.

The event provided an opportunity for a range of companies, service providers and other stakeholders to share their thoughts on the collaboration and relationship between AWS and Ireland’s wider enterprise network. The award was presented by Minister Higgins and Enterprise Ireland CEO, Leo Clancy.

Minister of State for Business, Employment and Retail, Emer Higgins TD said: "The Irish companies that work alongside our multinational base are a vital part of Ireland’s economy. It is excellent to get an opportunity to get to recognise the success of these firms, who are at the frontier of the digital economy. Companies like this create jobs here in Ireland and, in the process, create a platform to expand internationally. I want to congratulate H&MV Engineering, and all the firms that were shortlisted for today’s award."

Leo Clancy, CEO Enterprise Ireland, stated: "In recent years Enterprise Ireland has worked closely with H&MV Engineering as the company has expanded internationally. It is exciting to see this highly innovative business go from strength-to-strength creating new jobs here in Ireland and overseas and are worthy winners of this award. I also wish to commend AWS as they continue to provide supports to a cross-sector of Irish businesses, including start-ups and scale-ups and play a significant role in nurturing innovation and growth within the overall enterprise eco-system."

Neil Morris, Country Lead for AWS in Ireland, said: "We have seen the data centre industry in Ireland expand significantly over the last number of years, giving local companies the resources and opportunities to build world-leading solutions in the areas of engineering, manufacturing and logistics. The importance of these companies to the Irish economy cannot be overstated and each have contributed significantly to enterprise and employment in Ireland. The work and success of H&MV Engineering is a prime example of the positive impact that foreign investment can have on the Irish economy, as a result of their collaboration with AWS."

PJ Flanagan, CEO of H&MV Engineering, commented: "Ever since we started working with AWS in 2013, this has created many different jobs and roles in engineering, project management and a number of supporting jobs in our Irish offices. The support AWS has provided to us has allowed us to establish a presence globally. We are delighted to have been awarded the AWS Horizon Award this year and it is testament to the hard work and commitment shown by everyone associated with the company."
