Demand for wind farm support vessels in the United States is expected to increase in order to support planned construction projects for both fixed and floating offshore wind farms in U.S. waters.
In The International Energy Agency’s (IEA’s) recent report Offshore Wind Outlook 2019, the U.S. is anticipated to add nearly 40 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2040, totaling $100 billion investment. State activities are driving this demand, with the East coast leading the effort targeting a combined stated goal of 20 GW, the majority to be installed before 2030.
The construction and maintenance of offshore wind projects calls for a combination of expertise that is comparatively new to the U.S. market and requires a variety of specialist support tonnage.
How is the industry positioned to support growing development with existing assets and technology?
Please join us for the ABS Focus Series for Offshore Renewables: Leveraging Fleet Capabilities to Support Demand to hear executives from offshore wind projects address future development in the U.S. We will discuss the latest technologies and digital solutions for vessel innovation to support offshore wind projects, and how owners and operators can navigate U.S. regulatory requirements for successful installations.
A panel of designers, developers and fleet owners will discuss the unique
challenges of US offshore wind projects and identify specialist vessel types and requirements needed to overcome installation challenges.
