Tekmar Energy, a U.K.-based supplier of cable protection systems, has signed an agreement for Massachusetts-based Whitman Consulting Group Inc. (WCG) to represent Tekmar in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean.

As a commercial services agent for the full line of Tekmar products and services, WCG will focus on offshore wind power, as well as on the marine hydrokinetic, oil and gas, and high-voltage offshore transmission markets.

“North American projects are finally under way, and the Whitman Consulting Group has the experience and expertise we were looking for to ensure we will be well represented in this important market,” says James Ritchie, CEO at Tekmar Energy. “We look forward to working with WCG in ensuring that project developers identify and avoid the common issues and risks related to their cable systems by protecting their cable investment properly.”

Tekmar says it has worked on over 27 offshore wind farms and supplied more than 3,000 systems since its entry into the market.

Joel Whitman, principal of WCG, comments, “We want to see a best-of-breed supply chain develop here in the U.S. We are very familiar with Tekmar as a result of our work over the years in the European offshore wind and transmission markets.

“Through our agreement, we aim to establish local business relationships in the U.S., which can grow as the market here expands over time,” Whitman continues. “We believe that is a low-risk way to begin development of a high-quality U.S. supply chain”
