Maryland Energy Administration High Resolution Geophysical Resource Survey

Maryland Energy Administration
Coastal Planning & Engineering, Inc.

Coastal Planning & Engineering, Inc., a CB&I Company, was contracted by the Maryland Energy Administration to conduct a high-resolution geophysical survey of the Outer Continental Shelf offshore Maryland in an area designated by the U.S. Department of Interior as the Maryland Wind Energy Area. The main objective of the survey was to collect and compile a comprehensive geophysical dataset as well as identify potential hazards and submerged cultural resources in support of the future development of a large utility-scale wind farm that will supply Maryland electricity consumers with a sustainable source of clean renewable energy. The high- resolution geophysical survey was planned prior to the federal government’s leasing of the Outer Continental Shelf Maryland Wind Energy Area in an effort to streamline and jumpstart the development process.
