Offshore Wind

The need for reliable marine vessel support is critical in developing Offshore Wind Farms.

Miller’s is here to support the windfarm industry in every way that it can. Our local New York and New Jersey knowledge will be critical to contractors of all sizes in this upcoming market. With prime locations across the Northeast, Miller’s has the equipment and experience to help support this new market from preconstruction all the way to the decommissioning of wind farms. Our vast local knowledge and talented staff gives us the ability to support both big and small projects in numerous ways. Our fleet ranges from 205’ DP classed Offshore Supply Vessels, or OSVs, capable of supporting the largest offshore projects to our small jetboat fleet that allows us to get into shallow waters where the Offshore Wind cables will make landfall for their connection point to the grid. Miller’s has been working with all the major wind developers and has a proven track record for providing everything from Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV’s) to Offshore Supply Vessels (OSV’s) to Tugboats and everything in between for a vast array of projects. Please give us a call today and find out how Miller’s can help provide marine support for your project.

What is offshore wind energy?

Offshore Wind energy takes advantage of the earth's natural resources and converts them to usable energy with a wind turbine. The concept is not new but very effective. A wind turbine’s blades are spun from the energy of the wind passing over them, this kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy and then sent through a cable back ashore to be used on land. This proven technology has been a staple in the European energy model for years now and is finally coming to the United States. This new renewable energy influx will help meet the ever-rising demand for energy in the United States for many years to come.

Why is the Northeast so important to offshore renewable energy?

The Northeast has been called the Saudi Arabia of Offshore renewable energy for a good reason. There are three main factors that make for a great location to install offshore turbines and the Northeast fits the bill perfectly.

High sustained wind in the area

Wind is the natural resource that is being converted into useable energy. The more wind available to the wind farm the more power that it may generate.

Long outer continental shelf

Unlike the West Coast the Northeast has a long outer continental shelf. A long outer continental shelf means that the water depth in the Ocean remains relatively shallow relatively far offshore. Shallow water depths make for easier installations of the wind farms. This in turn keeps the costs lower for the end users.

High energy demand

If your new wind farm generates a lot of energy but there is not a high demand for the energy you must store it in some form, this can be cost prohibitive in most places. Luckily for Northeast, we have a high population density where the demand for the power stays high.

Qualifications & Credentials

Need Help Deciding What Vessel or Equipment is Right for Your Project?

Our website has a ton of information. So much so, that it might be easier for us to tell you the services that we can't provide! Please give us a call and let us help you solve your marine needs.
What information should I gather before reaching out?

The short answer is none. If you require marine support for your project our experienced team can guide you through most any situation. If you want to be proactive some key facts that will help us determine what vessels and equipment might be right for you are…

What are we moving and how much are we moving? People, assets, and bulk materials may require different vessels or equipment.

Where are we going to be operating? Some locations may have some limitations that you are not aware of, such as water depth or low bridges that may be an obstacle. If we know where we are going, we can better help you determine the best vessels and equipment for your project.

Duration of project? Are you looking for vessel for a few hours or a few years? We can help with both; knowing duration may better guide our suggestions.

How do I know what size vessel I need?

There are many factors that go into what size vessel you will require for a particular job. Some of these factors may include: location of operations, amount of people you are looking to have on board the vessel, what type of equipment or materials you are trying to move, what type of support you are actually looking for just to name a few. Our team are experts at interacting with customers like yourself to find out what your job requirements are so that we can make the best recommendation to you.

What if I can’t talk about the details of my project?

The short answer is YES. We are very accustomed to talking broadly about our capabilities where no sensitive details need to be exchanged. If it looks like we may be a good candidate for you we are also very comfortable in dealing with Non-Disclosure Agreements, or NDAs for short. We have a long track record of not discussing your private business with anyone else.

I don’t see a vessel that meets my needs...

The short answer is YES. Our fleet may be more versatile than you think; we have used our equipment and vessels in many different ways that at first glance do not seem apparent. Give us a call and let someone from our team solve your marine support problems.

Our company was started with one vessel and now boasts more than 70+ pieces of floating equipment. We are always looking to expand our fleet and the best way to do that is by talking with our customers to find out what new unique equipment they would love to see in the Miller catalog.
