Rhode Island Wind Farm

A short video of the building of the wind farm off Block Island, RI. The boats are called Jack Up boats. The legs are extended to the sea floor and then the hull is lifted out of the water and wave action. It provides a very stable platform which is needed for the precision lifts to mate the blades to the hub. These are some of the toys Ocean Engineers play with.
