VolkerWessels subsidiary Visser & Smit Marine Contracting (VSMC) recently signed four contracts with a combined value of over € 150 million for the installation of cables for wind farms.
Alfred Vos, member of the board of VolkerWessels: ‘These orders underline the excellent qualities of VSMC as one of the leading European companies in the field of electrical energy connections for offshore, near-shore and landing projects.'


The contracts cover the following projects:
