Cosalt, provider of safety equipment for the marine, industrial and offshore markets, has signed a new joint venture agreement with Danish company APRO, an engineering services business with many years experience in the wind energy market.  The partnership is designed to take advantage of the major growth expected in UK offshore wind energy.

Cosalt recently set up a dedicated Renewable Energy division to supply inspection and testing services plus marine safety, lifting equipment, tooling and height safety products to the renewables sector, particularly offshore wind farms.  It also provides legislative compliance support, quality assurance and health & safety competency services through its Cosalt Compliance team.

This specialist product offering combines well with APRO's engineering expertise and long-standing customer relationships in the wind energy market. Established in 1998, APRO has contracts with many of the world's major wind turbine manufacturers, including Vestas and Siemens.

The joint venture with APRO will be known as Cosalt Wind Energy and will sit under Cosalt's Renewables division. Based in Cosalt's new Head Office in Grimsby, the venture will be headed up by Winston Phillips, Managing Director of Cosalt's Renewables business. Joining him on the Board of Directors of Cosalt Wind Energy Ltd will be Lauge Fredhave and Henrik Moeller-Jensen, the joint owners of APRO.
