I’m pleased to learn that our customers appreciates the skills and capabilities of DeepOcean in the decommissioning segment. Also, I’m looking forward to yet again co-operate with the AF Group on a challenging project where the joint capabilities of the two companies are brought together”, said Mads Bårdsen, President, DeepOcean.
