Dutch eye Chinese offshore
Oceanteam Solutions, KCI the Engineers and OFFCO form cable lay team
Dutch companies Oceanteam Solutions, KCI the Engineers and OFFCO are to cooperate on offshore wind projects in China.
The consultancy and representation agreement covers installation and cable lay operations in the Asian country, with Oceanteam and KCI supplying marine equipment and engineering capabilities.
The companies said OFFCO has a strong local market presence and contacts at all levels with Chinese companies and authorities, enabling it to build a bridge between the two countries.
KCI director of sales & marketing Jan Willem van Bloois said: “Neither KCI nor Oceanteam has an extensive sales network in China, which is a notoriously difficult market to enter.
“OFFCO knows the Chinese market and speaks the language. At the same time it is a partner that we have known very well for many years.”
The partners added that they are currently collaborating on an “offer for a major renewable energy project in China”.
