Maryland-based offshore wind developer, US Wind, has launched oceanographic survey activities within its Maryland offshore lease area. A team of scientists and other experts will collect data beginning in April into July 2021 to inform project design, including foundation type, turbine location, and cable burial routes.
The geophysical survey operations will be conducted along a tartan-pattern survey grid by US marine research vessels R/V Brooks McCall and the R/V Miss Emma McCall. Operated by TDI-Brooks, both vessels are designed to execute geophysical surveys for offshore hazard and site clearance assessments, cable routing, seafloor mapping, fisheries habitat mapping, and burial assessment studies.
