Mojo Maritime, the Falmouth-based marine renewable energy experts, has expanded into France, having incorporated a wholly owned French subsidiary in response to the growing French tidal energy market. Mojo Maritime France is headquartered in Cherbourg, Normandy, and has operations in Nantes, Western France. The company started trading on 1 May 2014.
The first project for Mojo Maritime France is the development of an innovative seabed preparation system that has applications for the tidal energy sector – a key area of development for the company. This project is in conjunction with Cassis-based company, Geocean, and is partly funded by a grant administered by the French Government Agency ADEME.
Richard Parkinson, managing director of Mojo Maritime, commented, “The expansion of Mojo Maritime into France is an exciting step forward for us. We see the French tidal energy market as a key area of development and have been lucky enough to receive lots of support for our venture from local stakeholders. We are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Mojo in both the UK and France and will be on hand at All Energy this week to discuss our plans further.”
