Seven Years ago, Roy began his pivotal role in Deepwater Wind’s proposed wind turbine project off the coast of Rhode Island.
As the then business manager of Local 37 Ironworkers, Roy was positioned as a key catalyst to help bring Rhode Island labor union workers, residents, environmentalists and finance, government and business leaders together and make the project a reality.
On December 12, 2016, Block Island Wind Farm came online as the first offshore wind installation in the United States. 300 jobs were created and 17,000 homes are powered by five 6 megawatt turbines.
Roy and his Royal Advisors team offer all stakeholders roles in offshore wind and wave farm projects in the U.S. and overseas — from U.S. contract bid team building, design, and permitting to financing, manufacturing to installation — his invaluable front-line experience, high-level contacts and proven success.
