Confirmation of this award represents our 16th active Marine Coordination contract to be undertaken during 2022 and reaffirms our position as the market leader in delivering Marine Coordination services.
Over the past couple of years, we have delivered a range of services to the project, and the decision by Dogger Bank Wind Farm to extend our relationship is testament to the level of
