JDR has officially opened its European service centre in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
The opening was marked by an official ceremony led by Nick Brown, MP for Newcastle upon Tyne East followed by a tour of the 4,000 m2 facility.
The multi-purpose centre includes a workshop, warehouse, visitor centre and offices. The facility – which will house up to 50 staff – will also serve as the central base for JDR’s European service operations and the company’s sales and marketing functions, JDR noted.
JDR COO, Richard Turner, said: “With this new centre we can now offer our clients a wider range of services and state-of-the art technical support for onshore and offshore activities. Ultimately, this allows us to grow as a company and enables us to deliver an even higher quality of service to our customers.”
The opening ceremony coincided with a contract signing with Tideway who selected JDR to provide termination and testing support for the inter-array cables scope of work for one of their offshore wind farms currently under construction.
