Bladt Industries and the German steel fabricator EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH have decided to further strengthen their presence in the UK by establishing a new joint company based by the River Tees in the UK to manufacture offshore steel structures. After more than a decade within the offshore wind business and after several successfully completed joint offshore wind projects, the joint venture - Offshore Structures (Britain) Limited – has been established with the intention of strengthening the position in the British market. This marks an important milestone of the offshore wind industry where experienced European based manufacturers invest in developing the UK offshore wind industry.
The new joint company, Offshore Structures (Britain) Limited, will become a key part of the European manufacturing base of EEW SPC and Bladt Industries. It will be situated at the site of the former TAG Energy Solutions. Bladt Industries and EEW SPC will acquire the assets of Tees Alliance Group Corporate (TAG) which enables a rapid ramp up for the new company as a significant part of the facilities is already in place.
