Want a Water-Based Wind Farm? Geotechnical Drilling and Mono-Buckets Make It Happen
Windmills will soon be standing tall in Lake Erie thanks to an innovative combination of offshore oil-rig technology and geotechnical drilling. The row of six windmills that make up this latest Great Lakes wind farm will be located northwest of Cleveland, a few miles offshore from downtown. The windmills are expected to generate enough power for 6,000 homes. If you've imagined windmills on your lake or large pond, you should know that having these is becoming safer and easier thanks to cross-industry collaboration.
