It has been a true team effort along the way together with our long standing partner AF Offshore Decom to secure this contract. We are both pleased and proud that this has earned our clients trust in the HAF consortium to execute this complex EPRD project”.
Bengt Hildisch, President of AFOD, says: “Thanks to all, both within Heerema and AF Offshore Decom that helped to win this important work. The award of both Dunlin Alpha and Brae Bravo in the last two weeks, cements HAF’s position as the absolute market leader in EPRD projects in the North Sea”.
