Sound & Sea Technology, Inc. (SST) was awarded a purchase order with cost share totaling $162,000 from Lake Erie Development Corporation (LEEDCo) located in Cleveland, Ohio for a Desk-Top Study, Database and GIS Development to support an offshore wind turbine foundation design effort. Last year, LEEDCo developed a conceptual design through a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) competition in which Sound & Sea Technology also participated. A recent DOE award of $2.8 million will allow LEEDCo to pursue detailed engineering design and assess the technical and cost performance of the Icebreaker foundation throughout the East Coast, Gulf Coast, and the Great Lakes regions, as compared to other alternatives. The term of the contract will be approximately 6 months. “Sound & Sea Technology is excited to be part of this project which is on the forefront of renewable energy technology and its implementation in the U.S.” said Judith A. Meggitt, President of SST. “We have substantial experience in wave, ocean thermal and tidal renewable marine energy engineering projects which will integrate well with this offshore wind project. This project will help diversify SST’s ocean renewable energy portfolio,” said Dallas Meggitt, SST’s Technical Director.
