The typical offshore wind turbine generator (WTG) currently being installed worldwide produces 6 to 8 megawatts of electrical power and stands more than 100 meters above the ocean surface. This paper reviews the approach used at Block Island and discusses how it can be applied to future projects. An analysis of alternatives for various vessel fleet combinations that can be used for this purpose is provided.

Inspection of towing vessels under Subchapter M is well underway, and the required in-compliance date of July 20th, 2018 is rapidly approaching. MiNO Marine can help determine your vessel’s readiness for inspection, and we are standing by to be your Sub M advocate if any issues arise during the COI application process.
After more than a decade of regulatory development informed by an open dialogue with the marine industry, the U.S. Coast Guard has issued rules for the inspection of towing vessels under 46 CFR Subchapter M.
On June 20, 2016, the U.S. Coast Guard released the final rule for 46 CFR Subchapter M. While most requirements in the rule do not go into effect until July 20, 2018; there are, however, some requirements that are in effect now.
America's first offshore wind farm, Deepwater Wind's pilot project, is under construction 3 miles off the coast of Block Island. Three liftboats of MiNO Marine design have been involved in the historic installation. Two of the liftboats are currently at work on the site at this very moment. These liftboats are owned and operated by Montco Offshore.
