Team Humber Marine Alliance (THMA) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Offshoreenergy.dk as they look to develop closer offshore wind industry links between Denmark and the UK.

The two business development organisations want to harness the potential of supply chain companies and wind farm projects in both countries and will cooperate closely on inward and outward offshore trade missions.

Mark O’Reilly, CEO of THMA, said: “This is a long-term, win-win agreement. The British offshore wind market is rapidly emerging and needs expertise and skilled manpower in order to meet future demands. We want to tap into the expertise, knowledge and experience within Denmark’s offshore wind industry to help us develop to our full potential, allowing projects and supply chain businesses here on the Humber to thrive.”

The alliance sees several initiatives and events in the months ahead that have come directly out of working with Offshoreenergy.dk, including the development of an offshore wind Ph.D programme involving several European universities.

Hans A. Pedersen, head of Offshoreenergy.dk’s Renewables division, said: “As the Danish offshore industry’s knowledge centre and innovation network we have focused on establishing cooperation between Denmark and Britain for the last two years. Signing the memorandum of understanding is the first fruit of our closer ties. We consider Team Humber Marine Alliance to be the perfect partner for Danish companies – for the benefit of the industry in both countries.”

This is the latest strategic move by Team Humber Marine Alliance and follows a similar agreement with Windcluster Norway, and closer ties with WAB, the German offshore wind energy organisation.
