“During the construction of the onshore substation in Bicker, near Boston, for our 875MW Triton Knoll Offshore Windfarm, both the project and Siemens Energy have made regular contributions to a safety charity fund, based on achieving important safety performance targets on site. Thanks to the dedication of the project teams we have been able to donate money to locally significant community projects. It is important to both organisations to support charities which benefit the local communities and play a real role in delivering vital services to the people who need them.”
