Spring 2021

Expertise for the extremes

The James Fisher group has brought together its expertise and experience to form two new brands - James Fisher Renewables and James Fisher Subtech.

James Fisher Renewables consolidates the group’s extensive capabilities in the marine sector with specialised engineering services to form a comprehensive solutions provider for the fast-growing offshore renewable wind markets which are driving the energy transition.

James Fisher Subtech focuses the group’s subsea capabilities for the oil and gas, renewables, near shore marine civils, rapid response and salvage industries.  

The new brands create the foundations of a powerful subsea and nearshore offering for customers, contractors and partners in many locations around the world.

These changes come as part of a group-wide move to align people, resources and organisations with the specific needs of customers as part of the group’s ‘purpose driven’ initiative. For customers, this means enhanced cost, risk and schedule management underpinned by streamlined professional services and supply chains.

‘Accelerating trends within the energy industry, and particularly the energy transition brought on by the climate emergency, has presented an opportunity for the group to focus on providing expertise for the extremes,’

'Realigning our business like this means no project will be too complex for us,’ 

Explains Giovanni Corbetta, managing director of the marine contracting division.

Jonathan Parkes, divisional strategy, sales and commercial director of the marine contracting division adds:

‘The growing volume and scale of offshore wind sites means an increasing number of developers need specialist capability. There is also a marked increase in renewable investments being made by oil and gas supermajors,’  he adds. ‘So, it makes sense for James Fisher Renewables to serve across the energy space.’

The establishment of James Fisher Renewables allows the group to leverage its specialist expertise working in extreme environments, supporting renewables developers in pushing boundaries to accelerate the energy transition, while maintaining existing energy infrastructure. 

It will bring together capabilities from across the group to provide specialist services in site preparation, UXO EOD, noise attenuation, cabling and HV commissioning management, operations and maintenance, as well as providing digital solutions. 

The newly formed James Fisher Subtech now combines the technical expertise
of James Fisher Marine Services and Subtech to create a comprehensive tier-two solutions provider. This restructuring consolidates the group’s subsea offering to leverage its specialist expertise at working in extreme environments. It will help offshore developers push boundaries to accelerate the energy transition to support oil and gas majors, renewables developers and marine civils contractors alike.
