James Fisher to drive energy transition with new renewables brand
23 March 2021
James Fisher, a leading provider of innovative marine solutions and specialised engineering services, has today announced the launch of James Fisher Renewables, which sees consolidation of the group’s extensive capabilities into a comprehensive solutions provider.
Recognising significant growth opportunities in the renewables sector, the new structure will see James Fisher leverage its specialist expertise working in extreme environments. The move will support pure-play renewables developers, marine civil constructors and oil and gas majors alike in pushing the boundaries of what is possible to accelerate the energy transition, while maintaining existing energy infrastructure. Bringing together capabilities from across the group, JF Renewables will offer services through the project lifecycle including site preparation, UXO EOD, noise attenuation, cabling and HV commissioning management, operations and maintenance, and digital solutions. Clients will also benefit from seamless provision of James Fisher Subtech’s newly consolidated subsea capabilities, also announced today.
Giovanni Corbetta, Managing Director of James Fisher Marine Contracting Division explains: "Accelerating trends within the energy industry, particularly the energy transition brought on by the climate emergency, present an opportunity for the group to focus on what it does best – providing expertise for the extremes. Complexity is where we excel, helping to deliver the world’s most complex, technically demanding, and environmentally challenging energy projects in construction and operations and maintenance. By realigning our business, revitalising the leadership team and reinvigorating our culture of trust, integrity and operational excellence, there will be no project too complex for us to deliver on.”
Established in 1847, James Fisher has operated in the offshore wind sector for nearly 14 years, from supporting clients on those initial pilot projects through to today; developing further offshore and into deeper waters. Rooted in its experience in Europe, James Fisher continues to grow its service into emerging markets including the USA, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea. The company’s realignment, along with its network of trusted industry partners, 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.
