Wind energy – U.S.A.
SEA.O.G Offshore, an integrated services provider to the offshore energy industry, has announced a merger with Louisiana-based Crosby Tugs.
The partnership will focus on delivering installation support and operations and maintenance services for the U.S. offshore wind industry.
“The offshore wind industry must ‘Adapt and Evolve’ as we like to say,” James Clouse, CEO of SEA.O.G. Offshore, said in a statement announcing the partnership.
“That’s where we come in. We work to address the regulatory and operational challenges facing developers in this quickly evolving industry.”
The partnership allows SEA.O.G to combine its services with Crosby’s assets and experience to deliver low-cost and innovative solutions to the industry.
“The Crosby family of companies always finds a way of getting things done, and we immediately recognized that SEA.O.G Offshore had the same kind of dedication to solving problems,” said Crosby’s director of special projects Aaron Guidry. “We are thrilled to invest in an innovative company that is working tirelessly to address the needs of the offshore wind industry and, in doing so, foster a better, more sustainable blue economy.”
Together, Crosby and SEA.O.G Offshore will bring the ADAPT feeder barge concept to market. ADAPT is a stable, semi-autonomous delivery and installation platform for wind turbine components, foundations, scour protection, and cable lay.
