Ramboll studies US offshore
Consultancy on team to assess sector’s potential in Massachusetts
The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) has awarded Ramboll Environ a contract to study the offshore wind energy potential in the US state.
Ramboll will join a team on the study that includes Apex and other local engineering companies, the University of Massachusetts (Boston) Urban Harbors Institute and Tufts University.
The study – MassCEC Offshore Wind Ports & Infrastructure Assessment – involves a series of tasks.
These include an evaluation of underdeveloped waterfront sites in Massachusetts that could potentially be acquired and developed for offshore wind activities.
“The study will yield a series of property assessments to guide offshore wind developers, manufacturers and private investors in their selection of sites to fabricate, manufacture, stage, deploy and service offshore wind components in Massachusetts and along the east coast,” Ramboll said.
