Maersk to Enter Wind Installation Market with New WTIV

Maersk Supply Service, a unit of A.P. Moller-Maersk, will construct its first offshore wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) following a contract award from Equinor and BP in the United States.

The vessel will be built by SembCorp Marine in Singapore with the steel-cutting ceremony set for later this year. Delivery of the vessel is expected in 2025.

The investment from Maersk Supply Service comes after Maersk was awarded a contract from Equinor and BP to install turbines for the Empire 1 and 2 wind farms off of New York State, together with U.S. partner Kirby Corporation.
