The blades for five giant wind turbines from the French company Alstom will be delivered to Deepwater Wind in Europe in April under a contract announced this week. So when will Deepwater be able to put them to use in what could be the first offshore wind farm in the U.S.? Not nearly as soon as hoped.
While Cape Wind in Mass. may claim to be the most famous offshore wind farm project in the US, Block Island (in RI) might before long hold a more meaningful title - the first offshore wind farm in the US.
