HOUSTON, June 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — RelyOn Nutec and Crowley, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU), to directly enhance the availability of offshore wind safety training across the U.S. Creating an industry-leading training initiative in the U.S., the strategic partnering pairs the leading Jones Act maritime solutions provider with the world’s largest provider of specialized safety training and consultancy for the oil and gas, offshore, renewables and industrial sectors.
Together, the consortium will develop and administer geographically scalable wind energy training across the United States through the creation of Global Wind Organization (GWO) satellite facilities. These facilities will offer certified training standards which align the requirements of the GWO organization of wind turbine manufacturers and owners.
Jenni Lewis, managing director for RelyOn Nutec’s Gulf of Mexico region, said, "Crowley is well known as a leader in maritime and logistics and is growing its focus in the U.S. offshore wind industry. Having Crowley’s world-leading expertise in offshore operations and supply chain management combined with RelyOn Nutec’s experience in wind training and management systems, expertise and global presence, will ensure that this safety-critical training can be delivered in an emerging region with an accelerated growth strategy."
Working in cooperation with government and local higher learning institutions, the training will support the safety of mariners and technicians. The partnership will leverage the opportunity for Crowley to use its hands-on experience in the energy sector to augment RelyOn Nutec’s GWO training and eventual training support of crew transfer vessels ("CTV"), service offshore vessels ("SOV"), and wind installation vessels ("WIV").
"This partnership will combine Crowley’s commitment to safety and sustainability within its industry-leading and successful engineering, vessel operations, project management and logistics sectors in U.S. offshore markets with RelyOn Nutec’s time-tested safety training and consultancy within the offshore, renewables and industrial sectors," said Jeff Andreini, vice president, Crowley New Energy. "This will directly enable the strategic and continued growth of a qualified workforce to support reliable staffing for the new energy sector."
