Aqueos completes Coastal Virginia diving contract

In: Windfarms
Aqueos Corporation recently completed a diving contract for support of the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) development off the U.S. east coast.

Aqueos deployed an IMCA compliant diving system and personnel onto a 175’ class lift boat to support the work. The work consisted of trenching the HDD pull in conduit, installation of sealing flanges, pull-in monitoring operations and protecting the HDD exit site by installing 45-tons of washed local gravel.

“We capitalised on our years of experience in the oilfields of the Gulf Of Mexico”
stated Mr. Allan Palmer, Aqueos Director of Civil and Military Services. He added: "The project execution by our experienced personnel using an Aqueos owned IMCA compliant diving system resulted in a successful project, completed as planned and on time. As a Virginia State approved marine construction contractor, we look forward to serving our wind farm clients in the future”.

The 12 MW CVOW project is the second offshore wind project to be built in the United States and the first in federal waters. It is positioned in a federal lease area about 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach and includes the deployment of two 6 MW commercial-scale offshore wind turbines.

Monopile foundations will support two Siemens Gamesa 6-MW
SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines. The pilot project is set to come online later this year and is being developed by Ørsted on behalf of American power and energy utility Dominion Energy.
