Talon has also acquired an interest in Beothuk, and plans to work with the company to develop and construct offshore wind projects in Atlantic Canada and the United States.
“Talon is another key partner as we move towards developing Canada’s first offshore wind farm in western Newfoundland and Labrador,” Kirby Mercer, Beothuk’s president and chief executive officer, said in a prepared release.
Talon has a proven record of first-class construction on large-scale industrial projects, while providing local benefits, Mercer said.
Terry King, president of Talon, said his company sees offshore wind as the next emerging energy sector in North America and the opportunity to lead the way right here in this province is exciting and provides huge growth potential.
Talon provides energy services and solutions to the oil and gas, resource, heavy industrial and now the offshore wind sectors. It services clients in the oil and gas industry from offices in St. John’s and Edmonton, Alta.
