The Deepwater Block Island wind project is the first US-sited offshore facility. The project is owned and operated by Denmark-based Ørsted. The five turbine (30 MW) facility was placed in service in December 2016. In June 2021, the turbines were taken offline for six months after technicians identified “stress lines” in the GE Haliade 6-MW turbines. These photos from February and April 2022 show oil leaking down the Block Island turbines. An additional image taken on/around April 15, 2022 shows technicians cleaning the oil off the turbines.
