Atlantic Wind Transfers’ new crew transfer vessel (CTV) Atlantic Endeavor, destined for the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project, is getting ready for its launch.
Blount Boats rolled out the Chartwell 24 CTV on its lift dock in Warren, Rhode Island, a few days ago.
Once launched, Atlantic Endeavor will provide marine support services for the two Siemens Gamesa turbines at CVOW.
The CTV will be based out of Virginia’s Hampton Roads region.
Last year, Atlantic Wind Transfers placed an order for two Chartwell 24 CTVs to be deployed in support of new wind farms off the U.S. East Coast.
A few months later, the company revealed it had secured a contract to provide CTV services for Dominion Energy’s pilot project.
The 12 MW CVOW started generating power in September. The project is meant to provide the operational, weather, and environmental experience needed for a 2.6 GW development in the adjacent 112,800-hectare lease site.
