French renewable energy services provider Mojo Maritime has announced plans to rebrand to James Fisher Renouvelables to offer full portfolio of services and capabilities to marine renewable energy projects in France.
The news follows the launch of James Fisher’s dedicated offshore wind division James Fisher Renewables in March 2021 as an integrated delivery provider for construction support and operations and maintenance services.
The company’s French subsidiary Mojo Maritime will now become James Fisher Renouvelables as part of its global strategy to provide a consistent style and service offering to the offshore wind sector as it globalizes.
The change underpins James Fisher’s commitment to supporting and growing the offshore wind and marine energy industries in France by further strengthening the regional supply chain, creating local employment opportunities and supporting inward investment aimed at increasing local content during the construction phase, and throughout the operational life.
Diane De Bellefond, James Fisher’s country manager based in France, said: “Our ambition is to become the leading expert in France for offshore renewable energy services providing safe and trusted expertise to realise projects in harsh and hostile offshore environments.
“We aim to maximise the local content of our operations and create a positive regional legacy in terms of regional employment, local supply chain commitment and future generational education. We have ten years’ experience in fixed wind and the offshore wind energy challenges we’ve faced ensure that the James Fisher group’s expertise developed over the last ten years will be valuable to support the French market”.
Since 2014, Mojo Maritime has focused on the planning, integration, management and delivery of complex marine projects in offshore wind and tidal energy.
As James Fisher Renouvelables the company will focus on providing specialist solutions throughout the project development lifecycle including: site preparation; UXO/EOD mitigation, piling noise attenuation, cable termination, testing and HV commissioning management.
Also, the company will provide subsea and blade operations and maintenance services; as well as digital solutions focused on increasing availability and safety through curation of accurate as-built record.
