RWE has announced the upcoming start of the site investigation survey work for its Canopy Offshore Wind Farm, a floating offshore wind project off the coast of Northern California. The planned 1.6 GW project has the potential to power 640,000 homes with clean offshore wind energy.

RWE has selected Argeo to perform the site investigation work for Canopy. Due to the water depths in the lease area off the Pacific Coast of the U.S., Argeo will use an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) to conduct the surveys.

Canopy plans to conduct initial site investigation surveys during 2024 and 2025, with the first activities beginning this month. By mapping the seafloor, the project will assess the best locations for installing wind turbines, anchors, and electric cables, as well as better understand biodiversity, habitats, and other environmental factors to ensure responsible planning and design that minimises the impact on ocean ecosystems.

In a 2022 federal offshore lease auction, RWE secured the right to develop the 1.6 GW floating offshore wind project approximately 20 miles off the coast of Humboldt County.
