This geotechnical drilling project at Block Island off the coast of Rhode Island was done in tandem with the New Jersey Shallow Shelf Geotechnical Drilling Project – Expedition 313.  GZA GeoEnvironmental retained DOSECC geotechnical drilling services to conduct site studies for offshore wind development off of Rhode Island by Deepwater Wind.

Update 2016: This project went on to become the first offshore wind farm in the United States, going online in October, 2016.
