A HARWICH company has signed a long term contract with a leading European energy group as it looks to capitalise on the renewable energy sector.

Harwich Dock Company and Offshore Marine Management have signed deal with DONG energy to provide cable storage and management services at Harwich Navyard.

The first project will see Offshore Marine Management providing cable engineering, commissioning, consultancy and general cables services to support DONG Energy's wind farm operations and maintenance works.

Bill Binks from Harwich Dock Company said: "This is an important contract for us as we look to attract more renewable energy companies to Harwich."
