Dominion Energy has announced it has selected Huisman to fabricate the crane to be used on the United States’ first Jones Act compliant offshore wind installation vessel. Huisman joins a consortium of offshore wind industry companies led by Dominion Energy to build a Jones Act compliant vessel.
 
The crane for this installation vessel will be able to lift 2,200 tons and will enable the installation of the new generation of larger wind turbines. The vessel, which is likely to enter service in 2023, is expected to be based out of the Hampton Roads region of Virginia with a U.S. crew. The Jones Act is a federal law that regulates maritime commerce in the U.S. and requires goods shipped between U.S. ports to be transported on ships that are built, owned and operated by U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
