Blank Rome Maritime Associate Dana S. Merkel will speak at the 2019 Sea to Land Conference & Exhibition, being held September 19 and 20, 2019, in Norfolk, Virginia.

Dana’s session, “Let’s Talk Vessels (Construction and O&M),” will take place Thursday, September 19, from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. Topics she and her co-panelists will discuss include:

  • Offshore wind is unlikely to secure a waiver to the Jones Act, so what are the implications?
  • Assume the growing pipeline of projects provides sufficient assurance for private financiers to invest in vessels—what functions will the vessels be required to perform?
  • How many vessels will be needed for a) construction, b) major repairs, and c) operations and maintenance?
