Equinor Selects MMT for Offshore Wind Cable Route Surveys

MMT has been awarded the 2021 export cable route surveys for the Beacon Wind offshore wind farm. The project is led by the company’s team based in Providence, Rhode Island: MMT US Inc.

Having commenced in April to complete in July, MMT, the Ocean Infinity company, is conducting a combination of geophysical, geotechnical, environmental and benthic surveys along the export route of Beacon Wind sites 1 and 2. This contract is in addition to the offshore survey work awarded to MMT in 2020 which completed in May 2021.

The Beacon Wind offshore wind farm is located 20 miles (32km) south of Massachusetts and 60 miles (96km) off the coast of New York. When complete, Beacon Wind 1 will provide 1,230 megawatts of offshore wind power to the State of New York. Beacon Wind is being developed by Equinor and BP through their 50/50 strategic partnership in the U.S.

For the wind energy industry, MMT is a recognized expert in integrated solutions at all stages of the process. This includes surveying prime locations, identifying seabed conditions for construction and foundations, and conducting environmental surveys to understand habitats within the development sites.
