“Our collaboration with Vattenfall is of great importance for us as an ambitious and fast-growing offshore wind construction company,” said Even Larsen, Havfram Wind CEO. “Vattenfall is one of the largest players in the industry and already provides millions of European households with clean renewable energy.
