LONDON, UK, – DNV GL has won advisory of the Year at the inaugural European Wind Investment Awards, organised by A word about Wind. The European Wind Investment Awards celebrates the best practice in the European wind industry, which will help it to thrive in the coming years.
The 13 categories were judged by some of the biggest names in wind and DNV GL saw off stiff competition from Everoze, Wood, Mott MacDonald, Green Giraffe, Augusta & Co and Amsterdam Capital Partners, to win the Advisory of the Year category.
