The Engie-operated Cygnus gas field offshore UK has started production.
Engie said on Thursday that Cygnus, located in licence areas P1055 & P1731, is expected to contribute 5% of UK gas production – supplying sufficient gas to heat the equivalent of 1.5 million UK homes.
Vantrunk supplied the cable management system via Maclean Electrical.
In the lead up to the festive season, Vantrunk was delighted to be able to assist The Rotary Club of Runcorn by carrying out essential repairs and maintenance to its Father Christmas Sledge.
The repairs ensured Father Christmas' safety during his seasonal travels. Father Christmas is pictured here on his pre - Christmas, sledge test run, during which he stopped at Asda Runcorn on 22nd December to meet excited children and families.
The Movember Mission is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men's health and pictured are the Vantrunk Mo Bros who collectively raised over £800 during Movember 2013.
