Offshore wind support vessels to be built in the United States

Design of the new SOV

The American company revealed that it intends to build a fleet of Jones Act-compliant service vessels to serve the offshore wind sector including cable ships, crew transfer vessels and hotel ships. The vessels will work in all phases of the renewables business – from installation to operation and eventual decommissioning.
Elia Golfin, CEO of Aeolus Energy Inc, said: “The design and ultimate construction of these vessels will result in significant job creation and is a demonstration of confidence in the American shipbuilding industry. We are excited to be working with Ulstein, an established market leader in vessel design for offshore wind. We look forward to pushing the envelope in the offshore wind industry where Jones Act-compliant vessels are concerned.”
“Ulstein is proud to have been selected as design partner by Aeolus,” said Tore Ulstein, deputy CEO of the Norwegian company. “We are committed to support Aeolus and its chosen US shipyard in realising Aeolus’ new fleet development and jointly set the standard for excellent Jones Act-compliant offshore wind vessels.”

Orlando-based Aeolus Energy Inc has signed an agreement with Ulstein Design & Solutions BV to design a service operations vessel (SOV) based on Ulstein’s SX 195 specification but tailored to meet Aeolus’ specific requirements and for construction in United States shipyards.
