TEKMAR GROUP PLC
("Tekmar Group", the "Group" or the "Company")
NEW CONTRACT AWARDS
Tekmar Group (AIM: TGP), a market-leading technology provider of protection systems for subsea cable, umbilical and flexible pipes and offshore engineering services, is pleased to announce that Tekmar Energy Limited ("Tekmar Energy") has secured two contracts within Taiwan for the supply of its flagship cable protection system product, TEKLINK® and associated accessories.
The combined value, which is for execution and revenue recognition primarily in the current financial year ending 31 March 2020 ("FY20"), is worth circa £4 million.
James Ritchie, CEO of Tekmar Group, said:
"These recent awards come in addition to our earlier success in the Taiwan market with the Formosa Phase 1 and Phase 2 projects, which are currently being installed. As we have highlighted, the Asia-Pacific offshore market is strategically important to Tekmar and Taiwan has high ambitions for offshore wind, targeting around 9GW of power by 2030. It's worth noting that in 2018 Taiwan had no installed bases.
"These awards demonstrate our ability to secure and deliver to this emerging market and our commitment to the region as a whole."
The contracts are in line with existing management expectations and the Group has not altered its guidance for FY20. Further details of the project will be provided on the Group's website in due course.
