Infrastructure & Energy Alternatives, Inc. announced an alliance with Logistec USA Inc., a subsidiary of Logistec Corporation, a cargo handling and marine services provider with 25 port locations within the U.S.
IEA will use its engineering, procurement, and construction solutions with Logistec’s cargo handling capabilities in support of new utility-scale offshore wind developments along the U.S. East Coast.
“As a leading EPC company serving the domestic onshore wind industry, IEA is uniquely positioned to capitalize on a long-term trend toward increased investment in offshore wind development,” said JP Roehm, CEO, IEA. “We believe this alliance will allow for improved logistics, supply chain, and material handling capability along the East Coast corridor where Logistec has a significant geographic presence, one well-suited to service planned offshore wind developments in the region.”
In 2021, the U.S. Departments of Interior, Energy, and Commerce announced a shared goal to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind power in the U.S. by 2030. These capacity additions are expected to generate sufficient power to support more than 10 million American homes annually, while eliminating approximately 78 million metric tons of CO2 emissions.
“This unique partnership between IEA and Logistec will provide customers with a truly integrated service for the burgeoning offshore wind market,” said Rodney Corrigan, President, Logistec USA Inc. “IEA’s renowned suite of specialized services in the renewable energy sector paired with our field proven wind handling expertise will bring clean energy to communities in support of a sustainable future for generations to come.”
