'Ocean Stories' Miniseries Examines Offshore Wind Transmission Planning

A two-part mini-series of “Ocean Stories” features on the Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portal offers an educational look at the basics of offshore wind energy transmission siting.

Created by members of the Mid-Atlantic Committee on the Ocean's offshore wind work group, the first installment introduces the planning considerations involved with designing power cables in federal waters while Part II looks at the design and construction process for a cable connecting to two active turbines off Virginia Beach.
