  • EMRC Supports National Safety Week

    This week is National Safety Week, and for millwrights, safety is one of the most important skill-sets we bring to a job site. Included in this week's activities is the National Fall Prevention Stand-Down, to raise awareness of preventing fall hazards in construction.

    According to OSHA, fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction workers, accounting for 337 of the 874 construction fatalities recorded in 2014 (BLS preliminary data). Those deaths were preventable. Fall prevention safety standards were among the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards, during fiscal year 2014.

    Be smart and stay safe!

  • Eastern Millwrights Keep Historic Wind Farm Project on Point

    Just a few years from now, Rhode Island’s Block Island will be powered by an offshore wind farm 16 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. Getting to that point requires a multitude of professionals collaborating on who, what, when, where, why, and how to logically, efficiently, and most of all – safely – reach that goal.

    The project at hand is the Block Island Wind Farm – the first U.S. offshore wind farm in our nation’s history that is establishing its footprint 2.5 nautical miles southeast of Block Island.

    The five-turbine, 30-megawatt project will feature General Electric Haliade 150 6-MW turbines that should be installed in late summer 2016 with commercial operations starting before the end of the year. The project is expected to produce more than 125,000-megawatt hours annually.  

    Right in the thick of things are millwrights from the Eastern Millwright Regional Council (EMRC). They are working for General Electric and Deepwater Wind at a temporary manufacturing facility established by GE at ProvPort in Providence, R.I. – one of just two deep-water ports in New England.
