Meet Your Greens with Jeff Gardner
May 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Meet Jeff Gardner & Find Out How The Renewable Wind Industry Is Impacting The State of Connecticut
Join us on Thursday, May 19 at 5:30pm outside at cinder + salt, 195 Main Street, Middletown, CT. Rain cancels.
You don’t want to miss this Meet Your Greens event! Jeff will be speaking about the history of the offshore wind renewable energy industry in the US and his company’s involvement in the current renewable sector revolution.
Jeff’s company is involved with the Vineyard Wind Project, the first large-scale offshore wind facility in the United States. Vineyard Wind 1 will generate 800 megawatts of electricity annually and power over 400,000 homes, an equivalent of removing 325,000 vehicles from roadways.
Jeff’s career includes 27 years of offshore surveying around the world followed by the start and continued growth of his own company since 2015. Geo SubSea manages a wide variety of offshore programs for the wind developers and performs many specialized studies that are necessary for permitting and engineering of these large complex projects, including overall site characterization, benthic habitat mapping, geology ground model development, seabed mobility studies, cable routing feasibility studies, and much more. Jeff will provide an overview of many of these topics, talk about how the industry is impacting the state of Connecticut, and mix in a few maritime and seafaring stories from his travel adventures.
