Crowley Shipping Forms Offshore Wind Division

The Florida-headquartered Crowley Shipping has formed a new division focusing on the offshore wind sector in the United States.

Crowley Shipping expects its expansion in the offshore wind industry to be as a total lifecycle service provider, with tailored solutions in support of the entire project.

The solutions include transportation of turbines during construction, designs for industry-specific support vessels, shoreside terminal work, as well as supply chain services from project construction through decommissioning.

The New Energy division is also focused on services supporting the liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector in the U.S. and adjacent regions.

“We have engineered solutions to assist our industry partners in the installation of their wind farms, and once the project is complete, wind power companies can continue to turn to Crowley for operations and maintenance as well as help managing the terminal and vessel activity,” said Jeff Andreini, Vice President of the New Energy division.

“Wind power companies entering the U.S. market have big needs—infrastructure and supply chain just for starters. Because of the newness of the American market, it’s hard for companies to know what they don’t know or will need. Facing this uncertainty, Crowley provides a turnkey supply chain solution for piecing these massive projects together.”
