Marine specialist surges to top with £650m lagoon job
Van Oord beats Carillion and Bam to top spot in contractors league table after Swansea tidal energy win
Marine engineering specialist Van Oord was the surprise name at the top of the contractors league table in May, after the Dutch firm’s UK arm won the £650m job to build a tidal energy lagoon in Swansea.
Van Oord will build the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon, which will be the world’s first purpose-built facility of its kind, capable of generating predictable, renewable electricity for more than 120,000 homes for over 120 years.
