In delivering this, our commitment to Quality, Health, Environment and Safety has been recognized as world class by various awards, including for two consecutive years in the US – the Duke President’s Safety Award.

“However, at the core of this success is our customer, and our focus on building a customer-centric organization; from offering the most comprehensive onshore and offshore product portfolio, to delivering customized solutions across the full wind energy value chain. This is highlighted by our service business contributing over US$ 500 mn in annual revenues, by our firm orderbook of over US$ 6.8 bn and long-term service agreements totaling approximately US$ 2 bn.
