Dear All,

Is there any difference in meaning if I change the position of the adverb?
  1. In the 21st century the company participated successfully in more than 80 construction and technical transformation projects.
  2. In the 21st century the company successfully participated in more than 80 construction and technical transformation projects.


By the way, don't you think that present perfect should be used here instead of past simple?

Thanks

  1. In the 21st century the company participated successfully in more than 80 construction and technical transformation projects.
  2. In the 21st century the company successfully participated in more than 80 construction and technical transformation projects.

Yes, but say
eg
  1. In the 21st century to date, the company has successfully participated in more than 80 construction and technical transformation projects.
