Services that will be provided include a technical review of all installation procedures and calculations; the survey and inspection of installation vessels; the witnessing of the installation of turbines and subsea cables; and the issuing of Certificates of Approval. 

Block Island is located 15km from the coast of the State of Rhode Island. The Block Island Wind Farm will consist of five GE Haliade turbines, each with a 6MW capacity, mounted on jacket foundation structures off the southeast corner of the island. A submarine cable will connect these to the island, while another cable will be laid to connect the island to the mainland, allowing excess power to be sold there. The farm is scheduled to become operational in Q4 2016.
