The collaboration will provide SBU with tools and resources for its research that is already underway and support the development of the 210-MW Deepwater ONE offshore wind project for Long Island Power Authority. Deepwater Wind is providing both equipment and funding to support SBU’s coastal wind research programs. Two wind monitoring devices have already been deployed, one at the university’s South campus and one on Block Island, Rhode Island. These units continuously monitor wind speed and direction, and the data collected from them will be combined from other data to improve wind predictions over the ocean.
