UK-based James Fisher has launched James Fisher Renewables (JF Renewables), which sees consolidation of the group’s capabilities into a comprehensive solutions provider
Recognising growth opportunities in the renewables sector, the new structure will see James Fisher leverage its specialist expertise.
The move will support renewables developers, marine civil constructors and oil and gas majors alike as the energy transition accelerates.
In a statement, the company said its realignment “will unlock new synergies to position James Fisher as a comprehensive solutions provider. Clients will also benefit from enhanced cost, risk and schedule management underpinned by streamlined supply-chain management and professional services.”
Bringing together capabilities from across the group, JF Renewables will offer services throughout the lifecycle of projects, including site preparation, unexploded ordnance disposal, noise attenuation, cabling and high-voltage commissioning management, operations and maintenance, and digital solutions. Clients will also benefit from provision of James Fisher Subtech’s newly consolidated subsea capabilities.
James Fisher Marine Contracting Division managing director Giovanni Corbetta said the company was realigning its business and revitalising its leadership team to take advantage of growth in the market.
James Fisher has operated in the offshore wind sector for 14 years. Rooted in its experience in Europe, it continues to grow its service into emerging markets including the US, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea.
James Fisher Marine Contracting Division strategy, sales and commercial director Jonathan Parkes said, “As demand for offshore wind increases to meet net-zero goals and energy independence, the volume and scale of viable sites will need to increase. This will give rise to more offshore wind developers needing specialist capability to execute complex, technical energy projects in harsh environments.
“There is also a marked increase in renewable investments being made by oil and gas super majors. Developments such as these make a compelling case for us to position James Fisher to serve across the energy space.”
