Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) claimed it has secured the “world's best” marine offshore contractors to develop the planet's first artificial energy island in the Danish part of the North Sea on behalf of an investor consortium of pension funds and a utility.

CIP joined Spanish construction giant Acciona, Belgian marine contractor DEME, Dutch dredging specialist Boskalis, and Denmark’s MT Højgaard International – pooled in the Njord Group – in a bid to ensure reliable and timely project development and execution.
