WIND Cable Recovery

Recovering out of service cables from the seabed is the most important task of the WIND Cable Recovery department. These cables are then recycled by our partner Mertech Marine. The reuse of high-quality materials from the cables contributes to a cleaner environment and a more sustainable economy.

WIND is an open organisation where flexibility is very important. There are plenty of opportunities for further growth within WIND. We find a good work-life balance important and regularly organise outings, participate in local sports events and have drinks together. It’s not for nothing that our main entrance looks more like a pub than an office.
