Vineyard Wind Farm Approved

The offshore wind farm got its final approval from the feds. That will create some great structure for fish and a safe spot from draggers. It’s 12 miles south of the vineyard and can be up to 84 turbines.

:dismay: , is there anything Biden won’t screw up

If the whole thing fails and they crumble into the sea it will make even more structure. :laugh:
It’s too bad that it will be too far out for most boaters to access though.

They're probably not going to allow any boats within 1000ft of them.

 

Either that or the vibrations from the towers will attract seals.

I don’t see this as a bad thing. You can’t see it. It is out of site range from land. It is out of range for many boaters. They have spaced the turbine very far apart because of a concern from the New Bedford Fleet. The staging will be in New Bedford so should help out that area

Maybe they can build an island out there for the seals to keep them away from the cape. :laugh:

Boats are allowed near the turbines off Block Island....not sure the exact distance allowed, tho.

If all of the safety issues can be addressed it should be a good thing for the working folks and for those who fish once all is in place. Peace and Prayers

I thought all the snooty rich people on the vineyard shut down Cape wind? Why provide the entire cape with renewable electricity when it ruins a few peoples view of the ocean?

That makes more sense, Nantucket is the richer island.

This is the map of where they will be located. It’s got to be around 200’ deep there. Those are some serious footings.
