Green Light for New Wind Demonstration Project

Monday, October 11, 2010

ABS has been requested to provide classification services for the test turbine substructure for Wind Energy Systems Technology (WEST) wind farm offshore Galveston, Texas. A three-year wind assessment program evaluating the feasibility of a wind farm offshore Texas has been completed and WEST has reported wind conditions were satisfactory. The next phase is the removal of the meteorological tower from the foundation and replacing it with a 2.75 MW wind turbine. The test turbine has been permitted by the Army Corps of Engineers and will provide power to an adjacent oil and gas platform.  \Following a yearlong testing program, Coastal Point Energy has proposed a field of 52 2.75 MW turbines making the site the first offshore wind farm in US waters.
