    Ocean Infinity gets survey job for US floating wind project

    September 19, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 19 (Renewables Now) - US marine robotics company Ocean Infinity has been tapped to provide a comprehensive site investigation survey for a floating offshore wind farm that Norwegian energy company Equinor ASA (NYSE:EQNR) plans to build on the US West Coast.

      Ocean Infinity will conduct a range of offshore surveys using multiple autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) simultaneously to help Equinor make an informed decision and plan the construction and operational phases of the project.

      The project is set to start in February 2024.

      The survey job secured by Ocean Infinity concerns the floating offshore wind lease area (OCS-P 0563) in California which Equinor Wind US won last year with a USD-130-million (EUR 121.6m) bid in an auction of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management.

      Equinor believes that the secured area, covering 80,062 acres (32,399 ha), has the potential to accommodate around 2 GW of turbines. If installed, their output will be enough to supply 750,000 local homes, according to an earlier statement.

      (USD 1 = EUR 0.935)
