California-based Aqueos Corporation has completed a diving contract for support of the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) Generation Project development on the US East Coast.
The project required extensive upfront planning and detailed project development. Aqueos deployed an IMCA compliant diving system and personnel onto a 175-foot class lift boat to support the work. The work consisted of trenching the HDD pull in conduit, installation of sealing flanges, pull-in monitoring operations and protecting the HDD exit site by installing 45-tons of washed local gravel.
This project provided Aqueos with an opportunity to present our capabilities to leaders of the Offshore Wind Energy Sector: specifically, these include managing and meeting their expectations in performing work to international wind farm industry diving standards, as well as demonstrating our operational experience on the first offshore wind farm project to be installed in federal waters under the Bureau of Ocean Management (BOEM) program.
Aqueos Corporation, with offices in Broussard, LA, and Ventura, CA, provides marine construction and specialty subsea services including a complete range of commercial diving, remotely operated vehicles (ROV) and vessel-related services to the offshore oil and gas markets as well as municipalities, ocean outfalls and government projects.
