Offshore WIND’s photo of the day: Block Island offshore wind farm foundations at the Gulf Island Fabrications construction site in Louisiana.
The construction phase of what is to be the first US offshore wind farm commenced last month.
Specialty Diving Services is one of the contractors which will manufacture components of the foundation substructures.
The wind farm will comprise five Haliade 150 6 MW offshore wind turbines with a total capacity of 30MW.
Deepwater Wind, the developer of the offshore wind farm, expects the foundations to go into water later this summer.
