Marine Renewables Canada and the the Consulate General of Canada in Boston will host a webinar June 24 for an overview of the Jones Act and how it applies to Canadian companies looking to enter the offshore wind supply chain.
The Jones Act is a federal law that regulates maritime commerce in the United States. It requires that transportation of merchandise and passengers between two points in the U.S. must be made by qualified U.S.-flag vessels that are built, owned and operated by U.S. citizens. As the nascent U.S offshore wind industry develops, the Jones Act will have implications for how offshore wind projects are planned and constructed.
