Norway's Edda Wind and Seattle-based Foss Maritime are readying a joint venture to order newbuildings to support construction of US wind farm projects.

One unidentified tender could be awarded in early 2022, allowing the partners to firm up the deal and sign orders.

The tie-up, Edda Foss Wind, is a renewal of an effort announced in 2019 between Foss and Edda Wind's founding company Ostensjo Rederi, which never went live.
