Atlantic Wind Transfers: wind farm service vessel from Blount Boats

The first American wind farm service vessel, the Atlantic Pioneer, built in Rhode Island by Blount Boats and operated by Rhode Island Fast Ferry’s Atlantic Wind Transfers subsidiary, carries service crews to and from the first U.S. offshore commercial wind development, the five-turbine Block Island Wind Farm. The farm generates 30MW to power homes and businesses on Block Island, and its electricity will also flow to the mainland via an underwater power cable.

ZF Marine is proud to have our gearboxes on America’s first US Flagged Offshore Wind Farm Service Vessel.
