JDR has signed a framework agreement with Bibby Offshore for cable maintenance activities. 

Under the strategic alliance, JDR will provide cable maintenance services and offshore personnel, including high voltage and fibre optic cable jointers and associated competency systems.

Bibby Offshore will deliver project management and engineering services, in addition to a marine vessel with equipment for on-deck cable handling, storage carousel or reels. It will also provide cable lay and subsea equipment for lifting, excavation and burial of cables.

The agreement was signed during the opening day of Global Offshore Wind 2016 conference and exhibition in Manchester, UK, the companies informed.

JDR CEO, David Currie, said: “This agreement is an example of JDR’s expanding range of services to the global energy industry. Our technicians are highly experienced in offshore construction activities and we are delighted to partner with Bibby Offshore for future cable maintenance tenders.”

Bibby Offshore MD Barry Macleod said: “This agreement builds upon our recently announced cooperation with Ecosse Subsea Ltd and is a further example of the collaborative approach that we are bringing our offshore energy clients. Our ability to rapidly mobilize a marine cable repair vessel and spread in support of highly skilled JDR technicians will differentiate our service.
