AN engineering firm with offices in the North-East has secured more than £20m worth of offshore wind business following a series of contract wins over the past 12 months.

ENGIE Fabricom – which is headquartered in Grimsby, with offices also in Stokesley and Middlesbrough – has undertaken projects on behalf of tier one companies working directly on the UK’s largest offshore wind farms.

The company's engineering services range from anode installation, cathodic protection and grout repairs right through to safety modifications, turbine inspection and substation commissioning.

Investing over £110k into its manufacturing and construction facilities at its Immingham site, ENGIE Fabricom has also recently invested in its equipment to add an additional four Remote Operating Vehicles (ROV’s) to add to its range of specialist equipment.

Most recently, the company has also successfully completed two external audits carried out by major industry players Lloyds Register and Achilles.

These reviews highlighted the high standards within the business and confirmed it is operating in full accordance with strict industry standards.

Speaking about the contract wins, Richard Webster, CEO at ENGIE Fabricom said: “Over the last few years the offshore wind market is booming and, already having an extensive portfolio of projects in this sector, we have successfully used our experience and expertise to position the business as the leader and go to business for our specialist services in this sector.

“As such, we also have a very strong project pipeline in this field for the next 12 months and we look forward to continuing delivering projects of this nature to very high standards that ENGIE Fabricom is well known for.”

The wins further consolidate the company’s position as a market leader in the offshore wind sector and accelerates the global strategy of the ENGIE Group to be the world leader in zero carbon solutions.

According to RenewableUK, its latest report highlights that the offshore wind global market has grown by 16 per cent in the last 12-months with the UK remaining the largest single market with projects totalling over 38.4GW, currently at different stages of development.

And due to its significant growth in the offshore win sector, ENGIE Fabricom has now bolstered its business development team with the recruitment of three additional team members, including one internal appointment.
