Vineyard Wind and Semco propose New Bedford base
USA-based Vineyard Wind has partnered with Semco Maritime with the aim of creating an offshore wind service and maintenance hub in New Bedford.
Vineyard Wind is a joint venture between Avangrid Renewables and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), while Semco Maritime is a leading international service provider for offshore wind energy projects. The deal is part of the Vineyard Wind’s Commonwealth Wind proposal, which was submitted to Massachusetts’ third competitive offshore wind solicitation.
If awarded, Commonwealth Wind will be developed in an area 22 miles (35.4 km) south of Martha’s Vineyard that was designated by the federal government in 2015 following a multi-year stakeholder process.
