Mariner Safety

Deepwater Wind will be performing survey operations along the cable route and project site. During those times, all mariners transiting or fishing in the survey area are requested to provide a wide berth to survey vessels as they will be limited in their ability to maneuver (VRAM) and towing gear out to 300 meters behind the vessel. Vessels in the vicinity of the survey vessel should operate in a manner that will not endanger the vessel or associated equipment.
