As the largest shipping company in the world, COSCO Shipping wishes to enter this new market segment and has found a partner in DEME’s subsidiary GeoSea, with its extensive experience in developing, building and maintaining offshore wind farms.
The joint venture is also in line with the Group’s partnering philosophy, in which DEME expands its international activities through sustainable cooperation with local partners. Such combinations have repeatedly proved successful in DEME’s dredging and environmental divisions.
“After 21 years of creating land for the future with dredgers I’vechanged to creating energy for the future! Installing the MeyGen offshore tidal stream turbines to supply clean and renewable electricity to the UK was pioneering. I am proud to be part of the team realising this job under the most difficult tidal conditions. MeyGen for me really highlights DEME’s strive for sustainability.”
