Morrison Delivers Vineyard Wind Turbine Storage Frames
Morrison completed its scope of work on vertical tower storage frames for GE Renewable US to support the Vineyard Wind 1 Project in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
Vineyard Wind 1 is a significant offshore wind energy initiative situated off the coast of Massachusetts. As one of the pioneering ventures of its kind in the United States, it aims to harness the abundant renewable energy potential of the Atlantic Ocean. The project involves the installation of an array of wind turbines, with a planned capacity of 800 megawatts, capable of powering more than 400,000 homes.
Morrison contributed its decades of fabrication expertise and utilized a number of its facilities to meet project demands. The scope of work included manufacturing, testing, certifying and delivering multiple vertical tower storage frames designed to transport and store the Haliade-X tower sections for Vineyard Wind 1. The Haliade-X is a cutting-edge offshore wind turbine developed by GE. It is currently one of the largest and most powerful wind turbines in the world, with towers measuring over 850 feet each.
Fabrication of the massive storage frames was completed across Morrison’s facilities in Harvey, Louisiana, and Alvarado, Mexico. Morrison’s multi-disciplined workforce, established management processes, leading technologies and continued training and safety programs ensured that client expectations were exceeded throughout every stage of the project lifecycle.
With a commitment to delivering energy infrastructure, Morrison is proud to work with clients who are at the forefront of developing lower-carbon technologies, which includes offshore wind and other renewable energy developments. Wind is the largest source of renewable power in the United States and will continue to play a significant role in sustainable American energy in the coming years.
