North America’s first freshwater offshore wind project took a major step forward last Friday when the Ohio Power Siting Board re-commenced the review of its application and set the schedule for a second local public hearing on July 19, 2018 in Cleveland.

Icebreaker Wind will be the first freshwater offshore wind farm in North America. The first step in the project is a planned 20.7-MW demonstration wind site, which will consist of six, 3.45-MW turbines located 8 miles north of Cleveland, Ohio.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Board had paused the entire process in late October 2017 to study the methodology for conducting a baseline radar survey (8 miles from shore) for comparison to post-construction results.
