Wind specialist Ventolines starts working at America’s first offshore wind farm, Block Island Wind Farm. Ventolines has been asked to supervise the installation of the five wind turbines off the coast of Rhode Island. Work will start right away. Developer Deepwater Wind has chosen to cooperate with Ventolines because of its specific hands-on experience in (offshore) wind projects, which cannot be found in the United States yet.

Trailblazing project

“We are proud that we, a Dutch player, can assist in the successful realization of this first American offshore wind farm. For this project Ventolines will bring in people that were involved in the first offshore wind farm in the Netherlands. This type of pioneering assignments fits very well with our company and the people who work for us. Ventolines, for example, is also the driving force behind the establishment of the largest wind farm on water in the Netherlands, Wind farm Westermeerwind (the last turbine was recently installed and will be in operation shortly). We are glad that our knowledge and expertise can now also contribute to the establishment of this trailblazing international project. There is a huge interest in offshore wind power in the United States. For us it is a great opportunity to expand our services”, says Anne de Groot, Director at Ventolines.

Block Island Wind Farm

Block Island Wind Farm will be built on the East Coast, about 5 km south-east of Block Island, Rhode Island. The farm will consist of five 6 MW wind turbines. The farm is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Block Island Wind Farm is a project of prestigious offshore wind farms developer Deepwater Wind.
