"NextGeo's dedicated project team is proud to have worked alongside TenneT for over two years to achieve this incredible milestone during one of the most challenging periods the industry has faced in recent years,” stated NextGeo Project Manager Joseph Keable.
NextGeo Project Director Giorgio Ruta added, “This project has been NextGeo’s first experience with TenneT TSO B.V. and sets a high precedent for what we expect to be a long and fruitful relationship.”
