Ramboll has announced that it is to lead a consortium working on the foundation design for the US’s first offshore wind farm, which will be one of the world’s largest when complete in 2015.
Working with Keystone Engineering and PMSS, Ramboll will design foundations for the 130 off shore 3.6MW capacity turbines that will form the Cape Wind Offshore Wind Farm off the coast from Cape Cod in Massachusetts on the US east coast.
According to Ramboll director of offshore wind Klaus Jacob Jensen, this breakthrough holds great potential for the wind industry as a whole. “Cape Wind is likely to spearhead several other projects in the US. That could potentially benefit the entire industry and lead to the creation of new jobs,” says Klaus Jacob Jensen.
