TDI-Brooks International Heads To The East Coast Of The Us To Support Offshore Wind

By Eric Van Rees - 19th April 2021 - 08:42

TDI-Brooks International will be deploying two of their oceanographic research vessels to the East Coast of the US in support of US Wind’s MarWin offshore wind project off the coast of Maryland.

TDI-Brooks will engage in the seabed geophysical surveys to better understand the geological issues that may exist with project development to ensure safe and long-term operations and performance of the facilities.

TDI-Brooks research vessel R/V Brooks McCall will be deployed from the Gulf of Mexico in March with the R/V Miss Emma McCall joining her in April. Both multi-use oceanographic research vessels are equipped to acquire geophysical surveys for offshore hazard/site clearance assessments, pipeline/cable routing, seafloor mapping, port and channel conditions, fisheries habitat mapping and burial assessment studies.

US Wind was founded in 2011 and has established its position as a premier offshore wind energy development company in the United States. In 2014, US Wind obtained a federal lease for site control to develop approximately 1.5 GW of offshore wind power generation off the coast of Maryland. The MarWin project is expected to produce approximately 270 MW of power, which will help meet Maryland’s offshore wind energy goals. The project is expected to come online in 2024.
