The Goal

Marine biodiversity is a priority: offshore infrastructures often require the integration of nature-inclusive design (NID) solutions to mitigate and manage their ecological impact, and to create opportunities to support, enhance, and restore marine biodiversity.
In response, offshore developers and contractors are seeking new materials and innovative technologies to design and deploy alternative solutions to current industry standards.

The Challenge

The main challenge with this project was a very short lead time. Delivering the technology to enable nature positive marine infrastructure for offshore wind cable stabilization to required specifications within a short window of time.

How We Built It

The project was built with multi-layered benefits in mind. With scour protection and cable protection designed to optimize biodiversity uplift – while meeting standards for deployment and stability – a win-win solution for structural and ecological gains is achieved.
The solutions are mass-manufactured on site or near site by local providers in standard concrete procedures, benefitting local suppliers.

Vineyard Wind, an 800-megawatt project located 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard will generate electricity for more than 400,000 homes and businesses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
