Standing on the ferry's second deck while circling the site, Deepwater Wind President Chris van Beek told The Times that, "all of the steel foundation components have been fabricated" and noted that the final components, a steel jacket foundation and three decks, were en route from Houma, Louisiana. Van Beek explained that each foundation is comprised of two components: the steel jacket foundation and a deck, or platform, that sits atop it.

"It's a pretty simple process," said van Beek about the construction process. "It's a matter of just putting a few components together. Van Beek said that there has been good cooperation from all of the different entities engaged in the construction process for the project.
Van Beek noted that after the first steel foundation component was returned to Quonset Point last week, Specialty Diving Services adjusted the rigging by adding a few ladders, to allow workers the proper access to install the foundation in the water. The first foundation was due to be permanently anchored to the seabed during the week through a process that van Beek calls "pile driving," which means pile driving steel two hundred feet down into the sea floor.
"We were pretty keen about getting accurate precision" for the placement of the foundations, said van Beek. Deepwater Wind has engaged the surveying company T. Baker Smith, based in Lafayette, Louisiana, to provide GPS (Global Positioning System) data.
Van Beek denoted that two solar panels affixed to a platform deck component perched on a barge will power the aid-to-navigation system on each of the wind farm turbines.
