The Correll Group, Electrical Engineering Division is delighted to have completed the South Fork Offshore Windfarm in the USA.

South Fork is New York’s first offshore wind farm and constitutes of 12 Wind Turbine Generators (WTG’s), 2 Strings with 1 Offshore Sub Station (OSS). The scope was successfully delivered in two phases, the 1st phase was the completion of the Offshore Substation cable pulling and Terminations of the Platform Connector Cables (PCC) in Corpus Christi Texas.

The 2nd campaign was the offshore scope of termination and testing on the 12 WTG’s, located 16.6 nautical miles southeast of Rhode Island’s Block Island and 26 nautical miles east of Montauk Point on the South Fork of New York’s Long Island.
