OSW Supply Chain August Update

Visit our sister site OSW Supply Chain

While we New Yorkers are huddled in our homes, riding out the torrential rains from Tropical storm Henri (my apologies to Rhode Island, as New York got a Hail Mary wind blast that nudged him your way), I thought it would be a great time for some updates and to touch base with you all.

Whats New?

EnBW on the move.

Friends and website sponsor EnBW North America announced last month some leadership changes in preparation for the next round of solicitations. Dr. Lars Gonschorek will become the US-based CEO & Board Chairman, and former DoE Executive Damian Bednarz as Managing Director. Congrats to both gentlemen. We look forward to our continued collaboration. Read the full announcement HERE 

And speaking of jobs.

EnBW is also looking for an Offshore Wind Project Development Coordinator. View the requirements HERE 

A whole lotta acreage.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has announced 8 new lease areas of the NY Bight will be put up for sale. While the public comment period has passed, I would strongly recommend to all of our potential supply chain partners to read the proposed sale notice (PSN), as it provides a lot of insight into the process of how sites are selected, and the due diligence required to be undertaken by all the major players. It outlines the environmental reviews, breakdowns on each lease area, transit corridors and much more. We are hosting the document on our website, click HERE  

It's a favorable wind for South Fork.

The Orsted/Eversource JV (both proud sponsors of oswsupplychain) has been notified that BOEM has completed its environmental review of the South Fork Wind project, sited off of New York and Rhode Island. Congrats! Read more HERE

It's all about the workforce.

While LI prepares for the buildout of our operations & maintenance training facility, being built under the guidance of the National Workforce Training Center members ORSTED, the Federation of Labor LI, and Suffolk County Community College, the Massachusetts Maritime Academy (MMA) has kicked off their Global Wind Organization (GWO) certified programs. Their site will include a Crew Transfer Training Facility (CTTF), a 25-foot Crew Transfer Training Vessel, and a Working at Heights training facility. Get a glimpse of what we will be offering, along with many other programs, read the full article HERE  And don’t worry folks, there’s plenty of workforce training to go around! 

Stay informed.
