Sea Installer is supplied via barge with the first turbine components for Vineyard Wind 1.
Vineyard Wind 1 stands as the first large-scale offshore wind project in the US, and it is on the brink of installing its inaugural turbine. Due to the Jones Act, foreign vessels utilized for turbine installation necessitate barges to transport turbine components, an unprecedented feat on this scale. The vessel designated for turbine installation on the project is DEME’s jack-up vessel, “Sea Installer,” which will be responsible for installing the GE Haliade-X 13 turbines. Monopile installation is already in full swing and is being carried out by DEME’s heavy-lift vessel, “Orion.”
