Wind Farm Foundations Installed off Block Island


Block Island Times: All 5 steel foundations are now in the water, as the $290 million Block Island Wind Farm begins to take shape 3 miles off the southeast coast.

The 30-megawatt Deepwater Wind pilot wind farm project appears to be on schedule. Deepwater Wind representatives have said that they wanted to have all 5 in the water by the end of September.
