“As you are aware, all eyes were on us during this first major install. The Comms team have been out producing videos, some of our senior management have been out on site and all our stakeholders have been keeping a close eye on our progress, and to date we have had nothing but positive feedback about how the operation has been carried out. It’s also nice to hear reports about the positive attitudes displayed by the people on site when they have been approached. It’s clear to see that everyone on site had the same goals, to work safely and provide a high standard of workmanship.”

Neil Sears, TM Manager
