Dutch Boskalis recently established a new office to support the east coast offshore wind market in the US, which is expanding quickly.
The office, which is situated in Providence, Rhode Island, will act as the center for Boskalis renewables, providing support for numerous project teams.
Governor McKee of Rhode Island, President Fagan of the RI Commerce, David Ortiz, the director of New England market affairs for rsted, and Michael Ausere, the vice president of business development for Eversource Energy, all attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the office. Several business representatives from the offshore wind industry, including Waterson Terminals, Crowley, and RI Building Trades, with whom Boskalis will collaborate closely in the future, were present at the event.
In order to better serve the domestic US market for renewable energy, Boskalis has increased its activities there over the past few years. This initially included a number of marine survey campaigns necessary for offshore development’s preliminary stages. Three contracts for foundations, scour protection, transport, and export cable scopes in the northeast have recently been given to Boskalis. As part of the South Fork, Revolution, and Sunrise wind farm developments off the east coast of the United States, Boskalis will carry out monopile and substation transport and installation works, as well as scour protection works, for rsted-Eversource.
