Locations included Brazil, Angola, Houston, Malaysia and the UK as well as leading process improvement initiatives in those manufacturing environments and subsea installations with DeepOcean.
Tekmar’s recent growth has seen the company continue to secure multiple renewables contracts, including Race Bank, Rampion and Formosa. In addition to this, Tekmar has experienced consistent growth in the oil & gas subsea sector, despite the recent downturn, and continues to secure work with new and existing customers.
