David Wells, CEO of Aqualis ASA said:

“We are pleased that our positive momentum continues even after completion of several long-term projects at the end of 2017. Most of our entities have strengthened their market position and delivered positive results, except Norway in particular, where we have implemented additional profitability measures that are gradually phased in during Q2 2018. Looking ahead, we expect that our group operational performance in Q2 2018 will strengthen.

The activity in the offshore wind sector remains high, but with a competitive business environment. Growth opportunities are global and are likely to increase. Our focus is on capitalizing on these opportunities, leveraging our global office network and expanding our footprint. In addition, we are continuing to staff up our offshore wind operations in Europe.”
