IcebreakerThe Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation (LEEDCo) in Cleveland, Ohio has appointed Offshore Design Engineering Limited (ODE) as the engineering representative for Icebreaker Wind, a 20.7MW offshore wind project in Lake Erie, and the first freshwater offshore wind project in North America.

It is the first project to withstand significant foundation icing conditions (surface ice and keel ice loads on the structure) and the first to acquire a submerged lands lease option in the Great Lakes. The latest phase of work will involve ODE facilitating the certified verification agent (CVA) process for the project. This includes the completion of the basis of design, design methodology, independent loads analysis and support in other aspects of the project’s development by providing appropriate technical and commercial expertise.
