Purpose ….

Ørsted is conducting survey activities off the Delaware/
Maryland coast for its Skipjack Wind Farm project through
the fall. Similar to the survey activities we’ve completed
in years past, research vessels will be investigating
the composition and contours of the ocean floor both
nearshore and offshore. The purpose of these activities is
to explore the viability of potential cable route options
and other turbine siting activities related to Skipjack.
During these times, mariners are able to access the lease
and survey areas for transit and fishing, we request that
vessels keep a safe distance from our survey vessels. This
work is being done in accordance with federal and state
permitting agencies.
Vessel details and timeline
Updated survey vessel activity details are posted in our
