First US Wind Turbine Installation Moves Closer to Reality

US utility Dominion Energy plans to build the first Jones Act-compliant offshore wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) to support the nascent US offshore wind market.

Dominion Energy’s newbuild plans were unveiled by company chief executive Thomas Farrell during a first quarter conference call in May. During the conference call, Mr. Farrell explained Dominion Energy is part of a consortium formed to build the vessel, which would support leading offshore wind developers in the US market, not just its own projects.
