DKUK Newsletter December 2019

 

Dear Members and Friends,

Christmas is upon us, and here at the Association, we are looking forward to a busy time with two major events coming up.

This week, December 5th, we are kicking off with the annual DKUK Offshore Wind Conference in partnership with the Royal Danish Embassy. which will offer an overview of current and future developments in the UK offshore wind industry.

And then, as we've all been waiting for, the great finale of 2019 will be the annual DKUK Christmas Lunch on December 13th. Close to about 170 people, it's looking like yet another great one! We do have a few more seats, so why not join in? A very special thanks goes to our supporting event partners and DKUK Premier Members Danske Bank and Kromann Reumert.

Check out the Events section for more info on both events, and your chance to save the date for the exciting events already planned for early 2020.

Finally, we are very pleased to announce that Richard Crossick, Public Affairs Manager at DKUK Premier Member Ørsted, is this month's editorial writer. Read his thoughts on the offshore wind industry, action on global climate change and even a few words on his plans for the festive season. We invite you to have a read below.

With this, may we wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous and Healthy New Year.

Kind regards,

DKUK team (Deanne, Kristine, Gunnar & Henrik)
