Atlantic Wind Transfers has announced that its new Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV), Atlantic Endeavor, was launched from Blount Boats the day after Christmas.

The CTV spent three days going through sea trials and USCG Inspections to get ready for delivery to Dominion Energy, to support the
Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project and Siemens Gamesa.

The 12 MW CVOW project is the first offshore wind project in US federal waters, and is positioned in a federal lease area about 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach. The monopile foundations will support two Siemens Gamesa’s 6-MW
SWT-6.0-154 wind turbines. The pilot project was developed by Ørsted on behalf of American power and energy company will proceed Dominion Energy.

Atlantic Endeavor
is the company's second CTV. It was designed by Chartwell Marine Ltd and will join the
Atlantic Pioneer, which has been servicing the Block Island wind farm almost five years.

Block Island began commercial operations in December 2016, and is the first commercial wind farm in U.S. waters. With a total capacity of 30MW the project is expected to produce 125,000MWh of electricity per year, enough to meet the electricity demands of up to 17,000 households per year.
