GZA GeoEnvironmental (GZA), a provider of geotechnical, environmental, ecological, water, and construction management services, has closed offshore wind contracts with clients in New England and New York.
GZA manages more than 6 GW offshore wind energy development.
GZA’s capabilities in offshore wind include delivery of specialized offshore, nearshore, and onshore engineering. GZA’s scientists and engineers have experience with completing projects for utilities, energy developers, and port operators and working with federal, state, and local regulators.
GZA’s work in offshore wind began with providing geotechnical engineering services for the very first offshore wind farm conceived in the U.S., followed by the first offshore wind farm constructed in the U.S.: Orsted’s five-turbine, 30 MW Block Island Wind Farm.
Since then, GZA has supported other offshore wind projects including offshore turbine foundations, submarine cable routes, cable landings, on-shore interconnections, and electric network upgrades.
GZA also provided geotechnical, environmental, waterfront design, and health and safety services for new port terminals, and upgrades to existing ports requiring platforms and bulkheads capable of meeting the berthing and heavy-lift demands associated with manufacturing, assembly, construction, and operation and maintenance of the offshore turbines and cables.
