Icebreaker, the initial project, is designed to be a catalyst to building an industry in Ohio by capturing first-mover advantages associated with job creation and economic development. Icebreaker will consist of nine Siemens 3.0 MW direct drive turbines (27 MW) located 7 miles northwest of Cleveland in areas identified as "favorable" by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
Icebreaker will be a first-of-its-kind project:
- First freshwater project in North America
- First to withstand significant foundation icing conditions
- First to acquire Submerged Land Lease Option in Great Lakes.
- …because you can’t spell experience without Erie.
