A team of experts from TÜV SÜD PMSS will provide support and guidance for the management team of Cape Wind, the first offshore wind project in the USA. The companies signed a corresponding contract, according to a statement by TÜV SÜD PMSS.

Engineers and consultants from the USA and the UK work together on the PMSS team. They bring extensive expertise to the project in areas such as safety, health and environmental protection, quality assurance, risk management as well as other strategic consultation services.

"We look forward to supporting Cape Wind in implementing the first commercial offshore wind energy project in the USA. Cape Wind is the showcase project of the USA and has an excellent project team," says Sebastian Chivers, Senior Vice President of TÜV SÜD PMSS and head of the New York branch office. "We are thrilled that we will become a part of the team during the transition from the financing phase to the construction phase."

"We are pleased that we can bring the Cape Wind project to a successful conclusion together with TÜV SÜD PMSS, a partner who has substantial experience in the offshore sector," said Jim Gordon, President of Cape Wind. "Furthermore, we are convinced that our cooperation with TÜV SÜD PMSS will further promote the transfer of knowledge and experience to the USA that is necessary for building a domestic offshore wind industry."

Cape Wind expects the financing phase of the project to be completed by the end of the year, after which the construction phase will begin.

TÜV SÜD PMSS is an international consulting company for offshore wind projects. It is based on the British consulting company PMSS, which TÜV SÜD acquired in 2012.
