The joint venture builds upon the existing cooperation between BSO and MOW, which began in late 2018 when the two parties partnered in WINDEA Offshore US to provide a single point of contact for offshore wind energy customers in the USA.

Matthias Müller, managing director of Bernhard Schulte Offshore, said: "The Schulte Group has a track record of more than 550 newbuilding projects around the globe and MidOcean is a specialist at building vessels of various types under the local regulations in several US shipyards.”

MOW added that it will be able to ensure the vessels are Jones Act compliant.
