In September and October, a reconnaissance geophysical survey will take place within a portion of the BOEM Massachusetts Wind Energy Area, lease area OCS – A 501 (see survey update and chart below). This survey will gather data on seabed and subfloor conditions that will assist in identifying potential locations for future siting of offshore wind turbines.
Details of subsequent phases of the survey will be determined and announced shortly.
Collecting data and working with the local fisheries
This is the first step of data collection and assessment that Vineyard Power & our partner OffshoreMW will undertake within the next several years in this area. Vineyard Power is committed to communicating and working with the local fishermen in the region across all fishery sectors and during all stages of development of the proposed offshore wind farm.
