Semco Maritime and Moffatt & Nichol have signed an agreement to offer common engineering services to the offshore wind industry in the United States.
According to Semco, by joining forces the partners will be able to offer offshore wind farm concept studies and owner’s engineering services.
In addition, the two parties intend to work collaboratively on EPC (Engineering-Procurement-Construction) offshore high voltage substation projects.
“We believe that US offshore wind will enter a growth trajectory similar to what has been seen in Europe and we also believe that a combination of nearly two decades of offshore wind experience coupled with knowledge of US practices, codes and regulations, and engineering experience will be a win-win for our customers,” said Tommy Flindt, Director Technology at Semco Maritime.
The cooperation will offer engineering services to the market coupling Semco Maritime’s 15 years of European offshore wind experience with Moffatt & Nichol’s US-based engineering expertise within energy and infrastructure, Semco said.
“Combining our previous experience designing the Cape Wind substation and subsequent projects for the US Federal Government with Semco Maritime’s extensive experience in Europe, this team is well positioned to make a difference together as offshore wind develops in the US,” said Sean Jessup, Project Manager – Offshore Wind at Moffatt & Nichol.
