" "Curasure compiled and continue to update our 10-year-plan as and when necessary – hopefully only annually, but if the need arises, the plan is updated." "They manage our 10 year maintenance plan from a technical perspective and continue to provide their services for every project we embark on annually with an identical discipline of rigour and process. " "In preparation of the AGM we also completed a updated 10 year maintenance plan with Curasure. The full pack will be included in the AGM documentation with our proposed budget to fund our maintenance plan, which will be discussed under the finance section of the AGM."
