Offshore wind news

The first eight monopile foundations for the Dominion Energy Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Farm have been delivered to the Portsmouth Marine Terminal in Virginia. McAllister Towing of Virginia was extremely honored to be the tug company for this delivery. The tugs ALICIA F. McALLISTER and ROSEMARY McALLISTER met the vessel SUN SHINE off Naval Operations Base in Norfolk. From there, the tugs, with over 11,000 horsepower, safely guided the ship and monopiles to the terminal where they performed a Mediterranean mooring (guiding the vessel in stern first). This was the first ever Mediterranean mooring in the Port of Virginia. Bravo to pilot Chris Ferguson, the crew members aboard the tugs and the entire team at McAllister Towing of Virginia for this historic and successful arrival. Thank you to DEME Group for trusting us with this important cargo. We are so proud of this accomplishment and helping to lead the way for a greener tomorrow

PS> The crew of the HLV Sun Shine did a good job too, bringing the cargo safely across the Atlantic from Rostock.
