ENGIE Fabricom has reported securing over £20m ($26m) worth of business in offshore wind following a series of wins over the course of the past 12 months. This has seen the business undertake projects on behalf of tier one companies working directly on the UK’s largest offshore wind farms.

Most recently, the company has also successfully completed two external audits carried out by major industry players Lloyds Register and Achilles. These reviews highlighted the high standards within the business and confirmed it is operating in full accordance with strict standards including BS ISO 45001 and UVDB B2 assessment processes.

Speaking about the contract wins, Richard Webster, CEO at ENGIE Fabricom said: “Over the last few years the offshore wind market is booming and, already having an extensive portfolio of projects in this sector, we have successfully used our experience and expertise to position the business as the leader and go to business for our specialist services in this sector.

The wins further consolidate the company’s position as a market leader in the offshore wind sector and accelerates the global strategy of the ENGIE Group to be the world leader in zero carbon solutions.

According to RenewableUK, its latest report highlights that the offshore wind global market has grown by 16 per cent in the last 12 months with the UK remaining the largest single market with projects totaling over 38.4 GW, currently at different stages of development.

And due to its significant growth in the offshore win sector, the company has also bolstered its business development team, headed up by Andrew Stephens, with the recruitment of three additional team members, including one internal appointment.
