OWC and TCE Partner Up Offshore India

Offshore Wind Consultants Limited (OWC) and Tata Consulting Engineers Limited (TCE) have signed an agreement to partner up for upcoming projects in the emerging Indian offshore wind sector.

Under the agreement, the two engineering consultancies will combine their powers to deliver engineering and project management services to Indian offshore wind developments.

Last summer, India set a goal of adding 5GW of offshore wind capacity by 2022 and 30GW by 2030.

An expression of interest for the country’s inaugural offshore wind park near Gujarat, issued last April, attracted 35 responses from both domestic and international companies and consortia.

The Indian government plans to launch the leasing of 1GW of prospective capacity off Gujarat later this year.

“We believe we can play an important part in assisting India realise this,” said John MacAskill, business development director at OWC.

”We have been involved with offshore wind developments all over the world and our partnership with a major domestic company such as TCE will give international and local developers looking to this market their required range of technical and project management consultancy support to first bid successfully, then develop and realise their offshore wind projects in India.”
