Pipeshield’s sales manager Richard Prior said “We are delighted to
have been awarded this project, mainly due to the significance of it. We
see a huge opportunity in the emerging US offshore wind sector so to be
part of one of the very first projects is very satisfying. We hope to be
able to further share our specialist expertise of scour & cable protection
with future US renewable energy projects.”
