Cable protection specialist Tekmar Energy plans to return to the oil and gas market whilst maintaining its leading position in offshore renewables.

Cable protection company for the offshore wind industry Tekmar Energy announced its plans to return to the oil and gas market whilst maintaining its leading position in offshore renewables.
 


As part of the firm’s blueprint for growth, it aims to generate £15million in turnover from its oil and gas operations by 2016 as part of a strategy to increase overall turnover from £22-50 million and create 30-50 new jobs.
 


The company, headquartered in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham. is also looking to open a base in Aberdeen whilst expanding its existing operations in the North-east of England.
 


Founded in 1985, the firm initially specialized in oil and gas before moving into the expanding offshore renewables industry when it developed bespoke cable protection systems for cables connecting wind turbines.


 
Chief executive James Richie said, “Within the rapidly expanding subsea oil and gas sector, there is rising demand for high quality, reliable protection systems for subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines. We are gearing up to respond to this need with a flexible, high quality service and reduced delivery times.


 
“Oil and gas is an area we already know and understand and we feel the time is right for us to return to this sector. The industry rightly demands the highest quality in delivery and safety standards and we have a strong history of meeting these requirements.”


 
Tekmar is fully QHSE compliant and has obtained ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 accreditations.


 
Over the past five years Tekmar has installed more than 1,200 cable protection systems and has a further 1,000 in design or manufacture for the 26 windfarms it has been involved in across Europe.
 


The firm’s specially developed Teklink system provides enhanced cable life and resilience – reducing the risk of damage and requirement for maintenance. Teklink can also be installed without the use of divers and also removes the requirement for a j-tube.
 


Tekmar’s success was recently recognised when it was named the Company of the Year and won the Manufacturing Award at the 2012 Durham and Wearside Business Awards. In 2010, Tekmar won the Innovation Award at the North–east Business Awards.
