The heavy load carrier Sun Shine transported the monopiles to just off the Naval Operations Base in Norfolk. From there, tugs from McAllister Towing – Alicia F. McAllister and Rosemary McAllister – guided the ship and monopiles to the Portsmouth Marine Terminal.  

On behalf of DEME Group, McAllister Towing deployed a Mediterranean mooring technique – the first ever Mediterranean mooring in the port of Virginia.
