Wind Energy – Eneti
Eneti said today it has terminated talks with a shipyard in the United States to build a Jones Act-compliant Wind Turbine Installation Vessel (WTIV).
Eneti in May 2021 ordered a $330 million Wind Turbine Installation Vessel from South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering.
The company at the time said it was also in talks to build another offshore wind installation vessel for the U.S. offshore wind market.
However, Eneti, now says the talks for the Jones Act-compliant vessel had been discontinued.
Emanuele A. Lauro, Eneti Chief Executive Officer, said: “We believe the U.S Market for offshore wind will offer significant opportunities for the company in the future, but right now we are focused on delivering on our existing commitments and deriving value from our existing fleet.”
