Semco Maritime and Moffatt & Nichol have signed an agreement to offer services to the U.S. offshore wind industry.
Headquartered in Long Beach, Calif., Moffatt & Nichol is a global infrastructure advisory firm with offices in seven countries. Denmark-based Semco Maritime is an international engineering and contracting company dedicated to projects in the energy sector.
The partnership combines Semco Maritime’s 15 years of European offshore wind experience with Moffatt & Nichol’s U.S.-based engineering experience within energy and infrastructure.
By joining forces, the partners will jointly be able to offer engineering services and offshore wind farm concept studies. In addition, they intend to work collaboratively on engineering, procurement and construction for high-voltage substation projects for offshore wind.
“We believe that U.S. 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 U.S. practices, codes and regulations and engineering experience will be a win-win for our customers,” says Tommy Flindt, director of technology for Semco Maritime.
“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.,” adds Sean Jessup, project manager for offshore wind at Moffatt & Nichol.
