Seas-NVE's participants director Jesper Hjulmand applaud the deal, which at a stroke makes the andelsejede energy and fibernetkoncern with headquarters in Svinninge and Haslev to the country's largest energy and power grid company:
- This agreement provides us with some synergies and some muscles, as we now need to give back to our customers and shareholders. It can be in the form of lower network tariffs.
