American Offshore Services (A-O-S) has announced a strategic partnership with Orion Infrastructure Capital (OIC) to build CTVs designed to transport technicians and materials in varied offshore conditions.
Under the arrangement, OIC will provide financing to build a series of CTVs at Blount Boats to service the United States’ emerging offshore wind industry. Formed in 2020, A-O-S is a joint venture between European CTV operator, Northern Offshore Services (N-O-S), and U.S. offshore logistics company, SEA.O.G Offshore, to provide services to the U.S. offshore wind industry. In November, A-O-S placed an order for four hybrid-ready CTVs from Blount Boats of Warren, RI, USA.
