Aqueos has been a part of every offshore wind-energy project in the U.S. One project that showcases Aqueos’ merit is the Virginia Coastal Wind (VCW 01) Project.
When the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) issued consent to Dominion Energy to the first wind-energy research lease in U.S. federal waters, the bureau formed a chain of expertise that led to Aqueos. Dominion partnered with Danish multinational company Ørsted, which contracted Aqueos’ client, Subsea 7, to supply and install cables for the Virginia Coastal Wind (VCW 01) Project.
Aqueos assisted by providing project management and engineering services, as well as offshore support for the export cable nearshore installation.
Ørsted required divers to be IMCA-certified with similar experience. Aqueos personnel were already DNV-certified, IOGP approved, and IMCA/ ADCI members. Aqueos assisted by developing HSE, quality, engineering, and management procedures. Subsea operations included the excavation of the HDD bore hole exit location, transmission cable pull-in, grouting operations, and survey activities.
Powered by years of subsea experience in the offshore oil and gas sector, the Aqueos team is now prepared for more wind-sector work — and is well positioned to deliver future wind-energy projects to the Northeast and the Gulf of Mexico and the West Coast regions of the U.S.
