“Our strong global team is participating in key projects all over the world. These include the world’s largest floating offshore wind farm off the coast of Scotland as well as verification of the first U.S. project off Block Island, Rhode Island and classing the first Jones Act service operating vessel and wind turbine installation vessel. We will look to build on our strength in a range of areas including floating offshore technologies and support the offshore wind supply chain through project design and construction to operations, leveraging our leading U.S. presence and our international team strength,” said Lennon.
