“I couldn’t be more pleased with how our first ever SLPE Summer Conference turned out”, said Joe Hilton, Director of SLPE. “It was an exciting time looking at our recent achievements and aspirations for offshore renewables substructure design in the coming years. It was also a great opportunity to share our recently updated brand vision, mission, and strategy with the wider team, and a chance to discuss our ambition to become further established as a leading name the offshore renewables industry. Thank you to Patrick Maes of Smulders for joining us on the day. We hope to have you again next year”.

Thank you to Smulders for your hospitality – we look forward to collaborating on more projects in the future.
