SEA.O.G Offshore Solves the Need for Industry Know-how in a New Market
In June of this year SGRE CEO Andreas Nauen when interviewed by the Business Network for Offshore Wind was asked a straightforward question: What are the main criteria for factory locations in the USA for offshore wind? His response included uncomplicated, reliable, and economical transport of components between port facilities.
For the success of the industry, the transportation linkages between the posse of likely port contenders on the East Coast is crucial to understand. One step further, the linkages to the offshore wind parks are equally as important to understand. The market needs to have a full view and understanding of how to transport this specialized equipment safely and efficiently. The key to understanding this potentially complex web of ports, projects, cargo and cabotage is planning.
