David Preble is on the habitat committee of the NEFMC. He said recent technological developments in wind energy have set the stage for a much more rapid development of a large area of the northeast coastline. What has been thought of as something that was ten years in the future, Preble said, was ready to be put in place now. The difference has been new more powerful French wind turbines. That immediacy has caught managers and stakeholders of guard. With little or no baseline data to work from Preble said it was important to get organized quickly to engage with the wind development process.
This 6 MW turbine will "be the game changer in U.S. investment in wind energy", said Preble.
Noting research in the northeast U.S., Preble said, scientists have identified an offshore region between Virginia and Maine where it could be possible to continuously take advantage of optimum velocity winds.
Preble was in Europe recently where he surveyed wind energy installations and said he was amazed at the number of turbines in the water in several countries. France, he said currently gets 80% of its electricity from nuclear power and the rest from wind and solar.
Preble said the effect on the ocean bottom would come from digging to embed concrete block anchors, trenching for the network of cables, matressing- the granite rubble over bottom cables to protect them, and down stream scouring -the silt cloud that is deposited over the bottom down stream of the excavation.
