Construction crews installed the last deck platform on November 21. All of the construction and crew vessels associated with the operation have now demobilized from the site.
The first offshore wind farm in the United States, the 30 MW, 5 turbine Block Island Wind Farm is scheduled to be online in 2016.
“From the first ‘steel in the water’ in July to the last deck lift in November, we’ve completed a season of firsts – not only for the Block Island Wind Farm but also for the launch of a new American offshore wind industry,” said Deepwater Wind CEO Jeffrey Grybowski. “We are proud of the work we’ve accomplished so far, but we’ve only just begun – and 2016 will be a year to remember.”
