Zentech Inc. and Renewables Resources International (RRI) are pleased to announce to the United States Offshore Wind Industry the build of the first Jones Act compliant, four legged, self-propelled Dynamically-Positioned Level 2 (DP2) Jack-up Vessel based on a US-built barge. Zentech plans to install four truss legs with spud cans, a proven oil & gas design, integrated in a newly built hull.
This vessel will provide the now evolving US Offshore Wind Industry with a much needed and cost competitive marine logistic solution, converting a Jones Act compliant asset aligned with the conclusions from the European offshore wind learning curve. The vessel will also act as an Oil & Gas Crane Jack-Up for Decommissioning in 300-ft water depths when not in service for installing and/or maintaining wind turbines.
