Charybdis will be the first Jones Act-compliant wind turbine installation vessel. The crane will ensure that Charybdis, which is under construction for Blue Ocean Energy Marine (a Dominion Energy company) will be fit-for-purpose for the installation of large-scale offshore wind developments in the USA.
