Vineyard Wind, a joint venture between Avangrid Renewables and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), have announced that Deme Offshore US will serve as its contractor for the offshore transport and installation of the wind turbine generators for its Vineyard Wind 1 project.
Deme Offshore US is teaming up with FOSS Maritime Company, a US maritime service contractor that provides union jobs for its employees. FOSS will provide the Jones Act compliant feeder vessels, a concept by which the wind turbines will be transported from the port of New Bedford to the Deme Offshore US installation jack-up vessel. The Deme Offshore US office in Massachusetts will be the base of operations for activities for the Vineyard Wind project. Vineyard Wind is expected to reach financial close in the second half of 2021 and begin delivering clean energy to Massachusetts in 2023.
