DONG Taps Lloyd’s Register for US Offshore Wind Projects

DONG Energy has awarded Lloyd’s Register with a second contract to support offshore survey work on two projects in the United States – the Bay State Wind and Ocean Wind.

SGC Engineering, a Maine-based subsidiary of Lloyd’s Register, has already supported DONG Energy on its evaluation phase of the Bay State Wind project off Massachusetts with its offshore site and export cable route geophysical and hydrographic surveys.

The second contract will support further offshore survey work of the Bay State Wind project in addition to the initial survey work needed in the Ocean Wind site off New Jersey, both planned for May 2017.

Malgorzata Zorawinska at DONG Energy said: “The offshore wind energy industry is less mature in the US than in Europe, and our focus is very much on being ‘smarter from the start’. As the global leader in its field, DONG Energy can apply significant experience, knowledge and lessons learned through its own in-house expertise and with trusted partners such as Lloyd’s Register.”

If approved, Bay State OWF and Ocean Wind OWF are each expected to have an installed capacity of more than 1,000 MW.

Michael Cousins, Geoscience Manager at Lloyd’s Register said: “We are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with DONG Energy and to support its significant new wind farm projects off the eastern seaboard of America. Being strategically located in the region with related electrical engineering, marine geoscience and survey capability allows us to readily apply our knowledge and to mobilise resources in an efficient and cost effective manner, which are undoubtedly important factors as the industry in the US starts to develop.”
