Tekmar Energy and JDR Cables have signed a collaboration agreement for offshore wind subsea cables and accessory supply.
The companies said they will work together collaboratively on technology and value engineering projects to support the industry drive for cost, risk and lead time reduction.
Over the recent years JDR and Tekmar executed multiple offshore wind farm projects from their UK manufacturing sites. JDR and Tekmar’s products have been combined on projects such as Wind MW’s Meerwind in Germany, DONG Energy’s next offshore construction, Race Bank development, and most recently E.On’s Rampion Project, the UK’s first round three project.
JDR COO, Richard Turner, said: “At JDR we view our supply chain partners as an extension of our own business. This agreement with Tekmar allows us to work differently, beyond the barriers of a traditional transactional supplier relationship. It will allow us to develop synergies which will better serve the needs of our end users.”
James Ritchie, Tekmar CEO, added: “I am pleased to be able to formalise our existing relationship; Tekmar’s strategy is always to work closely with its clients to ensure better value and service. Through this agreement we will be looking to better our technology and value proposition to our joint customers.”
