However, through our well experienced cable and project team, supported by the terrific cooperation with DONG, we are able to keep one step ahead all the time and find a prompt and best fit solution for all parties”, he continues.
Asking DONG Energy, the employer for this project, the Installation Manager Lars Bruun comments as follows, “During the still on-going array cable installation work, we have had a very good corporation with CT Offshore. Our WoDS project team is very content with CT Offshore´s cable installation performance to date.
