Modus joins drive for carbon-free strategy.

MODUS Seabed Intervention, one of the region's leading subsea specialist contractors, has joined an alliance of organisations, led by environmental group the World Wildlife Fund, calling on MPs to support a drive towards a near-carbon-free-power sector by 2030. The Darlington-based company is among 35 organisations to sign the petition calling for changes to the Energy Bill.

The next opportunity to include a revision will be during Report Stage next month, where MPs will debate the latest amendment laid by Tim Yeo MP and Barry Gardner MP.

Jake Tompkins, managing director of Modus Seabed Intervention, said: "As a member of the offshore renewables supply chain we can see first-hand the importance of the sector to our industry, the economy and the UK's future energy security.

"We also support the aim of having a clear and long-term strategy delivered through the Energy Bill."
