Appendix E-3 contains a geotechnical subsurface investigation and analysis for the proposed Block Island Wind Farm. It also provides recommended geotechnical design parameters for use by the structural engineer and design team.
Appendix E-2 contains a marine site characterization study, within a 300 meter wide corridor centered on the primary and alternate cable alignments for the Block Island Transmission System (BITS). It evaluates seafloor conditions and underlying shallow stratigraphy. It also addresses state and federal marine archaeological, benthic, and shallow hazard concerns.
Appendix E-1 contains a marine site characterization study within a 300 meter wide corridor centered on the proposed Block Island Wind Farm export and inter-array cable routes. It evaluates seafloor conditions and underlying shallow stratigraphy. It also addresses state and federal marine archaeological, benthic, and shallow hazard concerns.
Appendix D contains an assessment of seafloor conditions and benthic habitats in and around proposed locations of the wind turbines and potential transmission cable routes for the proposed Block Island Wind Farm and Block Island Transmission System.
Appendix C contains construction drawings for the Block Island Wind Farm and Block Island Transmission System.
Appendix B-1 contains the preliminary project design plans for the Block Island Wind Farm and Block Island Transmission System.

Deepwater Wind has prepared this Environmental Report (ER)/Construction and Operations Plan (COP) to support the environmental assessment under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as well as the environmental analysis required as part of other federal, state, and local approvals and consultations for the project. The project includes the development of a 30MW offshore wind farm located approximately 3 miles southeast of Block Island, Rhode Island (entirely in state waters). It also includes the development of a 34.5 kV AC bi-directional submarine transmission cable that will run up to approximately 22 miles from Block Island to the Rhode Island mainland (within state and federal waters).
Fact sheet for the proposed Deepwater Wind Energy Center, which would consist of 160 offshore wind turbines located 30 miles east of Long Island, New York (nameplate capacity 900 MW), as well as a 98-mile, 600 MW submarine transmission line connecting the wind farm and Long Island to southeastern New England.
