Blocks Is. Wind Farm Developers Begin Seafloor Survey
October 4, 2011
Block Island Times: Deepwater Wind has started a month-long marine survey off the shores of Block Island to collect data about the seafloor and the layers of soil below.
The information collected will help determine the locations for the company’s 5-turbine demonstration wind farm—planned for within three miles of the island’s southern coast—and the submarine cables that will connect the wind farm to Block Island and Block Island to the mainland.
