  • The large assemblies are manufactured through a qualified worldwide supply chain.

  • Our supply chain is organized in such a way that we have the flexibility to choose where to manufacture geographically facilitating local content requirements or optimising project lead time and costs.

  • Our equipment is thoroughly tested throughout the production process and before delivery to allow for fast installation, commissioning and testing onboard.
