The German steel fabricator EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH (EEW SPC) and the Danish steel construction company Bladt Industries A/S have decided to establish a new joint company based by the River Tees in the UK to manufacture offshore steel structures.
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). The number of direct jobs is initially planned for approximately 100 with a planned growth to approximately 350. The speed of growth will depend on the development of the offshore wind market in Great Britain and elsewhere in Europe. Bladt Industries and EEW SPC expect to invest up to a potential GBP 25 –30 million for the acquisition, development and upgrade of the facilities. The size and timing of the investment will depend primarily on the growth of the UK offshore wind market.
