One of the leading cable manufacturers for the offshore wind market is seeking localisation opportunities in Taiwan’s fast-growing offshore wind industry and the wider Asian region
The company, UK-based JDR Cables, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Taya Group, an electric wire and land cable manufacturer in Taiwan.
Under the agreement, the two companies will collaborate on localisation opportunities on future renewable energy projects in the region, with a specific focus on building a stronger Taiwanese offshore wind supply chain.
In partnership with Taya Group, JDR aims to transfer key technical expertise and utilise Taya Group’s products and services in future project work. As a result of the signing, both companies will discuss areas where localisation can take place and where they can best support each other.
JDR sales manager Gary Howland said, “We are thrilled to sign the MOU with Taya Group today, and to be involved in one of the most exciting and ambitious emerging markets for renewable energy.
“Taiwan’s offshore wind industry has a bright future and we are extremely proud to be a part of it. We are the leading subsea cable supplier in Taiwan, and we’re looking forward to collaborating with Taya Group.”
The signing ceremony for the MOU was held at Taya Group’s headquarters in Taiwan on 10 July 2019.
