CTC Marine Projects Becomes a Part of Energi Coast Renewables Hub

21 October 2011

CTC Marine Projects, Ltd, a subsidiary of DeepOcean Group Holding AS, is playing a vital role in the newly launched Energi Coast, North East England’s Renewables Group.

The group is made up of 19 of North East England’s leading energy sector companies, which have come together to promote the extensive expertise of the regions offshore renewables sector and secure a proportion of the £1 billion global market.

CTC is a world leading subsea installation, cable-lay and trenching company with a vast fleet of marine trenching and burial equipment coupled with 20 years of practical experience. It is making significant advances in its business to become the preferred cable installation and trenching contractor in the growing offshore renewables market, and aims to capitalise on this with the support of the Energi Coast.

Stephen Wilson, Business Development Manager – Renewables, CTC, says of the regions new group, "CTC is pleased to be a part of the Energi Coast group, which will recognise and promote the significant capabilities that exist in the North East of England for serving the offshore renewables market.”

"Uniquely this region has the whole of the offshore cable supply chain from design, survey, manufacture, installation and trenching, which CTC is an important part of. The region also has all of the balance of plant capabilities, excluding the wind turbine, which will make it attractive to both EPC contractors and developers as a single supply chain source location.”

Benefiting from the support of a new parent group, DeepOcean Group Holdings (DOGH), CTC is well placed to strengthen its offshore renewables offering, and as part of the Energi Coast, promote the regions ability to support the up-and-coming offshore renewable projects, particularly in the North Sea.
