Jones Act WTIV concept

As part of a joint development project with Lloyd’s Register North America, NETSCO engineers and naval architects are responsible for the concept design of a Jones Act compliant Wind Turbine Installation Vessel. The WTIV design will be focused on meeting the requirements of current developments along the U.S. East Coast and the U.S. Great Lakes, such as crane capacity, deck space and water depth. Another key feature of the design is that it will use hull shapes that are common in the U.S. shipbuilding market.s.

Joining us from NETSCO for this podcast to talk some more about this design is Jan Flores.
