Offshore Team Sails To Cleveland


Muskegon-based Andrie Inc. has been hired to assist in the development of an offshore wind energy project in Lake Erie. The company’s 90’ by 50’ jack-up barge recently traveled to Cleveland to assist in lake bottom sediment testing seven to nine miles offshore. A jack-up barge is a floating platform with long poles in each of the four corners that can be lowered into the water down to the lake bottom to secure the platform above the water surface. LEEDCo, a public-private partnership, is developing a 27 MW, five to nine turbine offshore project.
