Simon Rio, CEO of PD&MS said:
“We are delighted to be granted this highly regarded F4OR status. The programme aligns with our strategic commitment to becoming a leading specialist services partner in the renewable energy industry and is another key milestone for our development in this sector.”
Managing Director of TECOSIM, Stuart Hawker, said:
“TECOSIM is committed to the development of low carbon technologies and is already working on electric and autonomous vehicles. The Renewable Energy sector is a big part of our future strategy and being involved in the F4OR New Anglia programme means we are now ideally situated to support the sector. We are excited about the potential of CAE, the opportunities it will bring and look forward to seeing the benefits of cost and time savings experienced by automotive industry, passed on to offshore projects.”
Matthew Christie, Business Development Director at Three60 Energy said:
“The F4OR programme enabled many THREE60 personnel to develop their understanding of the sector. This enhanced knowledge and the information provided informed the overall and individual business units strategy development. The programme helped THREE60 understand its place and has informed strategic developments and acquisitions in wind. Without our involvement in the programme, we would not be in such a strong position as we are to enter this new market.”
James Grala-Wojrezyk, Regional Manager East Coast of SMS, said:
“F4OR helped SMS mature at a more advanced pace into the renewables and energy field. The programme was able to facilitate the connections, and the ‘community feel’ – and clearly assisted in directing the businesses strategy as we focused our efforts on meeting key milestones with the programme. Their ‘can do’ attitude, and willingness to thoroughly understand our business genuinely helped.”
Donna Watson, Sales Manager at Tyne Gangway, said:
“The programme has given us greater sector knowledge and understanding of what it takes to work within the offshore wind industry. Following the F4OR programme has enabled us to define our working processes, procedures, and communication throughout the business and we continue to do so.”
Clive Cushion, Technical Director at Fern Communication, said:
“Support from the F4OR programme places FernCom on a strong competitive footing to win even more work in the offshore renewable energy industry, and they are more than ready for the journey ahead.”
The F4OR New Anglia programme was especially beneficial to Weatherquest in enhancing its business processes and confidence relating to contractual risk management, value stream mapping and alignment of strategic objectives throughout the business. The company is leaner, smarter and more effective as a result. It also learned that its service is instrumental in helping its clients to operate in a leaner fashion themselves.
