Atlantic Wind Transfers’ new crew transfer vessel (CTV) Atlantic Endeavor has begun working at the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project.
Blount Boats launched the Chartwell 24 CTV the day after Christmas, after which the vessel spent three days going through sea trials and USCG inspections.
At the CVOW project, Atlantic Endeavor is providing marine support services for the two Siemens Gamesa turbines.
Atlantic Wind Transfers placed an order in 2020 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 secured a contract to provide CTV services for Dominion Energy’s pilot project.
The 12 MW CVOW started generating power in September last year. It 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.
