“This contract award is an important stepping-stone in the growth ambitions of the company, and we look forward to building on our close relationship with Equinor and expanding our services in the offshore wind industry.”
Simon Underwood, Equinor’s marine & logistics leader for the Dudgeon project, added: “We are delighted to start this relationship with Green Marine and look forward to working together closely. The Green Storm is an excellent vessel that will allow us to continue safe and expeditious operations offshore at the Dudgeon windfarm.
“The Green Storm provides the technicians with a comfortable and efficient transfer platform that enhances efficient productivity whilst maintaining the highest level of safety. She is a welcome addition to our fleet and will work in tandem with our service operations vessel.”
