Rock Installation Vessel for U.S. Offshore Wind

Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co. LLC (GLDD) contracted Ulstein Design & Solutions BV to design the first U.S.-flagged Jones-Act compliant, inclined fallpipe vessel for subsea rock installation. The vessel is considered to be critical in building the future of the U.S. offshore wind industry, including establishing a U.S.-based rock supply chain network.

The basic design will be developed by Ulstein’s Dutch design office, with strong engineering contributions from its sister offices in Norway and Poland.
