CTC Marine shall also utilise their comprehensive offshore experience to provide the associated survey works, trenching scope, and stabilisation of the cable.

CTC Marine Managing Director, Daryl Lynch says of the contract success, “We are delighted to be involved in this prestigious project. This contract reflects CTC’s continued development in the renewable industry and it is the subsea engineering experience, skills and professionalism of our people that make us the obvious contractor of choice for this workscope.”
