Vineyard Wind has announced that it has signed a partnership with Shoreline Offshore to build out a berthing and fueling area for Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs). 

Under the terms of the agreement, Vineyard Wind will provide $750k in funding to support the acquisition of two floating barges to meet the berthing needs of Vineyard Wind and future developers.  The barges will be located on the northern side of Pope’s Island, which is fully protected by the New Bedford Hurricane Barrier, and help developers work during both the construction and operations and maintenance phases of the different projects. In addition to the barges, Shoreline Offshore will upgrade its existing facilities, including the addition of fuel tanks and other infrastructure needed to serve New Bedford’s multiple maritime industries. Once installed, the floats will be able to berth up to six CTVs and meet the specifications of the offshore wind industry, with access to a fueling station, potable water, ramp, and full security. Shoreline Offshore is currently working on final designs and permitting for the fuel terminal and expects it to be installed and operational by April 2023. 
Shoreline Offshore is a joint venture between the Quinn Family, a longtime member of the fisher community in New Bedford and SEA.O.G Offshore. Vineyard Wind is a joint venture between Avangrid and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP). Vineyard Wind will begin delivering clean energy to Massachusetts in 2023.
