Today, Marine Procurement is celebrating ECO Edison's 50% completion milestone alongside Edison Chouest Offshore, Orsted and Eversource Energy.
We are proud to be part of the team on this historic project. ECO Edison is the first ever American built vessel used for the US offshore wind industry. Building is taking place in multiple shipyards in Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida. Once complete the vessel will be based in Port Jefferson, New York.
Marine Procurement was involved with the specification and purchasing of all main equipment. Our engineering department worked with suppliers and ECO Engineering to define each piece of equipment and how they are integrated into the vessel. Our procurement and project management team sourced and purchased equipment and continue to work with suppliers to ensure timely delivery. Purchased equipment includes the main engines, thrusters, helideck, rescue boat and walk to work gangway.
Celebrations took place in LaShip, Houma, Louisiana and was attended by staff and guests. Speakers included Ross Chouest (Owner, ECO), Steve Scalise (House Majority Leader) and Mike Ausere (VP at Eversource energy).
“We’re proud to put our expertise to work on such an important vessel for the offshore wind industry’s future American fleet. Thanks to our decades of experience in offshore industries, our in-house engineers, and the hard work of more than 400 of our shipbuilders, we’re now more than 50-percent complete on this historic, specialized vessel that will serve as a model for the U.S. offshore wind industry and a homebase for American offshore wind technicians for years to come.” — Gary Chouest, ECO President and CEO.
