I could be wrong, but a raft of unusual vessels coming through the sixth boro recently is related to priorities set and now contracts signed by a NYS agency created in 1975 called NYSERDA.  Three organizations you’ll be hearing a lot from are Equinor Wind US, Ørsted A/S, and Eversource Energy, and their projects Empire Wind and Sunrise Wind.  Click here for a map of the target areas.

Geosea is one of these vessels.

She has accommodations for 70 crew, 

some of whom you see taking photos as they enter the Narrows.

 

As of this posting she’s in port in Elizabeth NJ.

 

Also in port this morning–and hence the rainy photo until I get a better one–it’s Regulus, a US-flagged platform supply vessel.

Here’s another, taken earlier from a slightly different angle.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who’s always welcoming of others’ photos, particularly now in relation to wind farm related developments in the sixth boro.
