Van Oord wins first US contract

Deal for the transport and installation of turbines at an unnamed offshore wind farm

Van Oord has won a turbine transport and installation contract for an unnamed offshore wind farm off the US east coast, its first in the country.

The company's Aeolus vessel (pictured) is scheduled to carry out the work.

Van Oord said the work will start next year.

Offshore wind projects scheduled for installation off the US east coast in 2023 are the 132MW South Fork Wind and 800MW Vineyeard Wind 1, both off Massachusetts.

Vineyard Wind selected DEME Offshore US as its contractor for the transport and installation of the turbines for Vineyard Wind 1 in February.

Eversource and Orsted are developing the South Fork wind farm.
