Developer RES has signed an agreement with offshore vessel owner Rix Renewables to jointly seek opportunities in the offshore wind market in the UK and Ireland
RES said it had partnered with Rix Renewables primarily to help deliver operation and maintenance services for the offshore wind assets it manages and operates.
Under the agreement, Rix will provide vessels and technicians to complement RES’ own asset management, technicians, and engineering and operational control staff.
The new agreement will see RES and Rix collaborate on operating offshore wind projects and pool resources, expertise and market knowledge. This will also help expand both businesses’ footprint in the offshore market and open up greater opportunities for offshore balance of plant work.
RES head of offshore Rob Fradley said, “This alliance will help both companies accelerate investment in offshore wind projects by freeing up additional resources and pooling our combined market experience.
“Both companies bring strong track records of delivering excellent results in the offshore market and we look forward to collaborating on future projects.”
Rix Renewables managing director James Doyle said, “We have worked with RES on a number of projects over recent years. This has highlighted the close synergies between the two organisations and has led to the decision to consolidate our working relationship via a strategic alliance.
“We are delighted to put our partnership on this new footing as it will enable us collaborate more closely in delivering safe and scalable solutions to the offshore sector.”
Rix Renewables provides services to the offshore and onshore industry, including crew transfer vessels, technicians and engineers.
