OCGen Module Mooring Project
CX(s) Applied: B3.1, B5.1
Location(s): Eastport, Maine
Office(s): Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Golden Field Office
This National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review is being conducted for tasks 7.0 and 8.0 of Ocean Renewable Power Company's (OCRP) proposed Module Mooring Project. During the initial NEPA review (signed on May 28, 2010), these two tasks were unallowable pending the submission of additional information and the renewal of the US Army Corps permit. Under these tasks, ORPC is proposing to design a mooring system for their OCGen Pre-Commercial Turbine Generator Unit (TGU) unit, moor the unit to the sea floor, and conduct monitoring to determine the effectiveness of the anchoring and cable system.
