WCG will represent Tekmar as its commercial services agent for the full line of Tekmar products and services in the US, Canada and the Caribbean. WCG will focus on the offshore renewable energy markets for wind and marine hydrokinetic as well as oil & gas and high voltage offshore transmission.

“North American projects are finally underway and the Whitman Consulting Group has the experience and expertise we were looking for to ensure we will be well represented in this important market.” said James Ritchie, Chief Executive Officer at Tekmar Energy. “We look forward to working with WCG in ensuring that project developers identify and avoid the common issues and risks related to their cable systems by protecting their cable investment properly.”

Issues related to cables are commonly cited as major areas of concern for offshore project installation and system maintenance. Tekmar has an excellent established track record of success having worked on over 27 major offshore wind farms and supplied over 3,000 systems since its entry into the market with its TekLink system which has revolutionised the connection and protection of subsea power cables.

“We want to see a best-of-breed supply chain develop here in the US,” said Joel Whitman, Principal of the Whitman Consulting Group. “We are very familiar with Tekmar as a result of our work over the years in the European offshore wind and transmission markets. Through our agreement, we aim to establish local business relationships in the US which can grow as the market here expands over time. We believe that is a low-risk way to begin development of a high-quality US supply chain.”

UK based Tekmar specialises in the design, manufacture and supply or subsea cable, umbilical and flexible protection systems for the renewable and oil & gas industry.

With over 35 years of combined experience covering all aspects of the offshore cable industry the Whitman Consulting Group brings a high level of knowledge and foresight to any installation project.
