The company said that it has decided to take its products to the North American market because offshore projects are finally under way in the region.
Tekmar has enlisted the help of offshore cable specialists Whitman Consulting Group to act as its commercial services agent in North America.
Having worked in the European offshore wind market for a number of years, Tekmar has been contracted to provide its cable protection services on 27 offshore projects.
The US offshore wind market has had a faltering start, with major delays to a number of large projects. However, in recent months several wind farms have moved closer to realisation, seeing contracts signed with suppliers and key regulatory hurdles cleared.
