Stefano Cao, Saipem CEO, commented:
“In the first half of 2017, Saipem’s performance was solid from both an operational and management point of view. The rationalisation and strengthening of the newly implemented organisational model continued and should lead to greater efficiency and effectiveness, as well as to a further reduction in operational costs. With these actions Saipem will be better positioned to meet the market upturn. Despite the persistence of a difficult market context, the Company has good visibility for significant order acquisitions in the near future.”
