Decommissioning

Having a pro-active outlook and striving to supply complete support during the entire economical life-cycle of offshore windfarms, C-Ventus has already started to develop decommissioning plans for a number of clients in order to aid in the preparation of methodologies, inclusive of required resources and time-schedules, as well as corresponding budgets. On that basis C-Ventus has been able to identify the potential financial exposure in relation to decommissioning which subsequently has been translated into realistic financial provisions for these works.

For each project, no matter how large or small, C-Ventus offers project management and engineering with a pragmatic attitude. All our project managers and engineers are competent in their fields of expertise in order to properly support our clients through all stages of a project, whereby a safe and healthy working environment is always paramount.
