2016-12-31

The first offshore wind farm in the United States, 30-megawatt composed by 5 GE Haliade 150-6MW turbine, in Block Island Wind began commercial operations in December 2016.

24 technicians from ENDIPREV worked around the clock together with GE Renewable Energy to put the wind farm running during the pre-commissioning both on the manufacturing assembly line in France, on-site commissioning and the four-month testing period leading to delivery to the final customer.

Block Island is the first of many Offshore wind power projects under development in the United States totalling around 24 gigawatts (GW).
Endiprev US has been working with the involved companies preparing the upcoming challenges for this ambitious goal.
