​NEARSHORE (NEARSHORENETWORKS) announced plans to open an office in Virginia Beach Town Center to provide remote communication and IT solutions that will empower our regional maritime industry.

"NEARSHORE is committed to supporting our wind energy industry clients worldwide," said Bob Miltenberger, NEARSHORE CEO. "Communications is their lifeline to operational excellence whether working near- or offshore. Our team must be in proximity to their operations and thus our opening offices in Virginia. NEARSHORE is known for rapid service response and solving communications issues when they arise. This new office makes sense to us and the customers we serve. Our thanks go out to the Virginia Beach Department of Economic Development on welcoming NEARSHORE to the community."

NEARSHORE will be providing the near- and offshore communications needs of the maritime companies developing Dominion Energy's Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project as well as the Avangrid Renewables' Kitty Hawk Wind project. Both of these major projects are groundbreaking for the U.S. offshore wind energy industry.

"We're excited that NEARSHORE has selected Virginia Beach to open an office, supporting the offshore wind projects and global internet hub that is emerging in our community," stated Taylor Adams, deputy city manager for the City of Virginia Beach. "Their global experience in providing maritime communication solutions is a key element in successfully building these industries in our city."

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, NEARSHORE is a global maritime communications company serving customers worldwide, providing satellite and cellular networks and hardware and software solutions.
