Royal HaskoningDHV were recognised  last week by Scottish Power for 5 years of support on their East Anglia THREE project with an award for Outstanding Customer Service. The work was led by the Environment AG in Industry and Buildings but involved staff from across the business – including important contributions from Water and Transport and Planning

Keith Anderson, ScottishPower’s Chief Corporate Officer said: "Royal HaskoningDHV have been engaged on our East Anglia offshore wind projects since 2012. Their involvement has spanned project inception, scoping, environmental impact assessment, stakeholder engagement and formal public examination by government appointed examiners.  RHDHV have worked seamlessly with SPR and fully embraced a ‘one project team approach’ which has led to efficient and streamlined project execution."

"Their flexible and focused approach has made a significant contribution towards ensuring that project milestones were achieved on time and on budget. They have always stayed focused and worked professionally to ensure that the pace of progress aligned with business needs, flexing their internal resource accordingly."

Technical Director for Offshore Wind Paolo Pizzolla who project managed the EIA and consenting for East Anglia THREE said  "The award is a real testament to the hard work done by over 50 individuals across the Environment AG and the wider business.  It reflects our deep technical skill as well as our knowledge of local and national issues and relationships with both client and stakeholders. It was a pleasure working with the RHDHV team over the years to get this project over the line - to do it in award-winning style is the icing on the cake"

Alistair Davison, Project Director for the East Anglia THREE EIA project collected the award on behalf of Royal HaskoningDHV. Alistair said "The service we provided directly led to the successful bid for the new East Anglia TWO and East Anglia ONE North projects for SPR as well as the Norfolk Vanguard and Boreas EIAs with SPR’s former joint-venture partner Vattenfall. East Anglia THREE was the project that pushed us over the mark of consenting 10GWof offshore wind in the UK – the follow on projects will add potentially another 5GW to that – truly an important contribution to greening the economy and enhancing society"
