Below is a list of all Jones Act qualifying vessels specifically designed to support offshore wind, including those under contract. Any thoughts? Am i missing any vessels in the list? It seems to me we are building an excessive amount of CTVs (Crew Transfer Vessels), and not nearly enough of any other type, notably WTIVs.
Timothy Axelsson from Liberty Green thinks for Biden’s 30 GW goal to be completed by 2030 we’ll need 45 CTVs and 6-15 SOVs
I understand Crowley is planning to get into the SOV side of things.
What are we doing for WTIVs? One on order, and wasn’t there another one at one point a years or two ago that was cancelled?
I believe Empire Wind is going to use a foreign flag Maersk WTIV being built in Singapore with a Kirby feeder barge setup.
