Role of Geosciences in Offshore Wind Developments
The SUT-US Marine Renewable Energy Committee (MREC) is hosting Deanne Hargrave, Geosciences Manager from Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind/Shell New Energies, presenting " The Role of Geoscience in the Development of Offshore Wind in the US" on February 9th 9am(CST).

Offshore Wind development is a complex, multi-year process that begins with the acquisition of a lease area. Geoscience data acquisition is the first large activity that occurs on the leases and cable routes that kicks off the eventual construction and operations of a project. The data that is acquired is key for environmental permitting, layout design, construction engineering and installation of the infrastructure. Extremely high-resolution ground models are developed that support the full life-cycle of these important energy projects. Ground models are a combination of geophysical, geotechnical, benthic and archaeological datasets that all work together to refine our understanding of the ocean environments.

Mrs. Hargrave will provide an overview of:
  • What are the tools used to conduct these surveys?
  • What kind of data are created?
  • What is the purpose of conducting these surveys?
  • When in the development process do these surveys occur?
  • When does data collection from these surveys affect thevproject?
  • Will data collected from these surveys be made publicly available?

About the presenter:

Deanne Hargrave, Geosciences Manager, Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind/Shell New Energies

As Geoscience Manager for Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind, a joint venture between EDF Renewables and Shell New Energies, Deanne is a recognized expert in marine shallow hazards and offshore development surveys with more than 20 years experience planning, executing and delivering large complex geoscience projects. Prior to joining Shell in 2014, Deanne was Operations Manager for Fugro Geo Services in Alaska, supervising technical personnel, implementing health, safety and environmental systems, and managing operations for large offshore projects throughout the Americas. Deanne is an active member in the geoscience community, currently a panel member of The NOAA Hydrographic Services Review Panel, a chartered Federal committee with public members, interacts with NOAA experts and advises the NOAA administrator on various issues, including NOAA hydrographic survey priorities, technologies relating to operations, and ocean research. As an early adopter of new technology, Deanne brings this technical insight to the working group and to the offshore wind industry.
