The book, described as the crown of the 50-year jubilee, showcases the road IRO has taken during the first 50 years of development, innovation and collaboration with energy sector.

“What I think is great to see is that it started 50 years ago here at the North Sea, and right now, 50 years later the companies are working on the next 50 years of energy transition – building together with innovations”, said Vergroesen.
