The Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation (LEEDCo) began a comprehensive geotechnical investigation of the soils under Lake Erie today where they plan to install six Mono Bucket foundations for the Icebreaker offshore wind project.
LEEDCo will test the soil and collect samples at each of the six locations. Donjon provided their large crane barge, the Farrell 256. Donjon also provided support from their shipyard as the team prepared the barge and other equipment for the work. Gardline Geosurvey and DOSECC Exploration Services will perform the soil tests and collect the soil core samples. The Holiday will transfer crew between the Port of Cleveland and the project site, 7 miles from Cleveland, twice per day, as the work onboard the Farrell 256 will be continuous, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
