Phoenix International Holdings, Inc. (Phoenix) teamed with Ocean Tech Services (OTS) to provide Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) services in support of the Block Island Wind Farm (BIWF) instillation. The BIWF is the very first offshore wind farm in the United States. It is a 30 megawatt, five turbine wind farm and is scheduled to be online by the end of 2016.
Working from April to July of 2016, Phoenix operated an inspection class ROV and completed a wide range of underwater tasks associated with the installation of the power cables. Tasks included monitoring cable touchdown on the seafloor prior to burial, monitoring cable pull-in at each offshore wind turbine platform, monitoring the instillation of concrete protection mats at cable crossings, and monitoring the installation of cable protection ducting. Phoenix also integrated the Innovatum Smartrak system onto the ROV and used it to perform cable tracking and depth of burial measurement.
