Some of the wind energy industry’s most innovative offshore wind technology is being used to complete America’s first offshore wind farm.

Deepwater Wind is now in the final phases of construction of the Block Island Wind Farm, situated around three miles off the coast of Block Island, Rhode Island. It is installing turbine towers, blades and nacelles ahead of it being commissioned in the autumn.

“We’re ready to bring this historic project across the finish line,” Deepwater Wind CEO Jeffrey Grybowski said. A project he hails as “the start of a new American industry”.

“Projects like the Block Island Wind Farm are the future not only of Rhode Island’s economy, but the whole country’s economy,” said Governor Gina M. Raimondo. “With this project, Rhode Island continues to position itself as a leader and an innovator in the industries of the future.”
