US Coast Guard (USCG) Assessment of Potential Impacts to Marine Navigation Safety- Cape Wind Energy Project

Source/Sponsor:

Creator/Author: 
US Coast Guard (USCG)
Description: 

The report assesses the potential impacts to marine radar from the proposed Cape Wind energy project for inclusion in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). The Coast Guard (USCG) finds that vessels would be able to navigate safely within and in the vicinity of the proposed wind farm, and that the impact of the proposed wind farm on navigation safety is moderate. Radar operators would need to pay closer attention to the radar scope to distinguish between a valid and false radar return; mitigations to aid the mariner in avoiding collisions would be needed to offset this impact.
