The Bridgeport shipyard has joined a growing number of marine companies to help meet the growing demand for vessels to serve the offshore wind farm industry being developed off the East Coast.
Hornblower Marine recently completed the conversion of a former commercial fishing boat into a fully operational crew transfer vessel for shoreline transfer operations. New Bedford, Mass.-based Coast Line Transfers is a service provider to the offshore wind industry and was involved in the development of the Vineyard Wind Project, which is currently under construction about 30 miles from Cape Cod and 15 miles south of Martha.
