He was also responsible for the Marubeni’s Borssele offshore bid with Engie, was involved in their minority investment in Mainstream Renewable Power and supported the financing of Seajacks’ jack-up vessels. Kerry also led Marubeni’s minority investment, and subsequent divestment, of Windfloat floating offshore project.
