“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,” says Tommy Flindt, Director Technology, 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.
“Combining our previous experience designing the Cape Wind substation and subsequent projects for the U.S. 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 U.S.,” says Sean Jessup, Project Manager – Offshore Wind, Moffatt & Nichol.
By joining forces, the partners will jointly be able to offer offshore wind farm concept studies and owner’s engineering services. In addition, the partners intend to work collaboratively on EPC (Engineering-Procurement-Construction) offshore high voltage substation projects.
