Based on over 90 years of experience and numerous projects within the metallurgical industry worldwide, McLellan can provide tailored services for integrated steelworks, individual process units and for all related facilities, covering both new installations and upgrades to existing facilities.

Our client base covers a wide range of stakeholders in the iron and steel industries, including project sponsors and investors, plant operators, government agencies and insurers.

World class technical expertise

McLellan has provided expert and specialist independent engineering and consultancy services to the metallurgical industry since the company was formed in 1927 and since then has been closely associated with the development of the UK steel industry. McLellan played a major role in the development and construction of the first large integrated steelworks in the United Kingdom and since that time has successfully planned, designed, engineered, project managed and provided consultancy services to numerous iron and steel installations worldwide.

McLellan can provide comprehensive engineering design, consultancy and project management expertise for all stages of the iron and steel processing value chain. In addition to the main process equipment, our services cover associated ancillary facilities including materials handling systems, utilities, waste treatment facilities, water treatment plant, industrial gases, building services, fire protection and logistics systems

Specialised environmental and regulatory capability

Steelmaking is an energy intensive process and as such consumes large amounts of energy, particularly in the form of fossil fuels. The process also produces significant amounts of waste materials in the form of fines, dust, effluent, slag and gaseous emissions. McLellan can work with clients from the outset of a project to ensure that all relevant environmental standards and regulations are identified, the levels of compliance of the project to these standards and regulations are assessed and, where appropriate, mitigation measures are formulated to minimise or eliminate environmental impacts.

Extensive commercial experience

Our portfolio of previous projects ranges from modernisations and enhancements of existing plant to greenfield developments of complete integrated works. Our unique combination of technical depth and commercial expertise enables us to provide integrated, value-added services to our clients and other stakeholders. McLellan can assist project developers and investors from the initial concept stage through to due diligence and project financing, procurement, engineering and construction. Our specialists regularly work alongside client appointed legal, financial and insurance advisors to bring projects to a successful financial close and execution.
