This document represents the Navigational Safety Plan for the deployment and operation of a 1:8 scale wind turbine on a floating offshore platform at the UMaine Offshore Wind Test Site located in Castine, Maine. This is a revision of a plan by Capt. Derek Chase submitted on December 7, 2010, for the UMaine Deepwater Offshore Wind Test Site off of Monhegan Island. The original plan was for deployment of up to two 1:3-scale floating wind turbine systems, while this revised plan has been updated to meet the requirements of the single 1:8-scale floating wind turbine system for deployment at Castine. This plan is required for permitting under the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) General Permit. The Navigation Safety Plan includes consideration of State and Federal requirements.
