Keeping Mariners Informed

Block Island Wind Farm (BIWF)

Located approximately 3 miles south east of Block Island, Rhode Island, the Block Island Wind Farm consists of five, six megawatt offshore wind turbines, a submarine cable connecting the turbines, and a submarine cable from the northernmost turbine to an interconnection point on Block Island. The construction of the five turbines and the transmission cables was completed in 2016. The BIWF team has worked closely with mariners, including commercial and recreational fishing groups, to minimize impacts to the extent possible.

South Fork Wind Farm (SFWF)

The South Fork Wind Farm is a planned offshore wind farm located 30 miles east of Montauk that will consist of approximately 15 wind turbines and a subsea transmission system that will deliver energy to East Hampton, NY. Marine survey activities are scheduled to begin in Summer 2017. Marine construction is planned to start 2021.
