An Irish firm specialising in technical fire engineering has won business in the UAE following R&D investment.
Joule Group has announced the creation of 16 additional roles in its Derry office as a result of the contract award, which will involve consultancy on an undisclosed airport development.
The company offers consultancy expertise on fire engineering design, construction and operational processes.
Joule Group co-founder and director John Noone said: “We are striving to create a safer world through our transformational technology and are committed to digital fire safety globally.
“The continual support we have received from Invest NI has been invaluable to the growth of our business.
“By undertaking R&D we have been able to develop our TFS product and secure innovative export deals with globally renowned companies.
“Business is developing rapidly so we have created a specialist team in the North West to focus on growing in international markets.”
The firm is already engaged on a project as part of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Financial District development.
