Join the Society of Women Engineers sections in Richmond, Hampton Roads, and Baltimore-Washington on a boat tour to view the two pilot turbines operating off the coast of Virginia Beach in Dominion Energy's Central Virginia Offshore Wind project. We have chartered a boat through Rudee Tours for a 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. trip, with 9:30 a.m. arrival to begin boarding.

The boat is equipped with two viewing levels, two bathrooms, climate-controlled cabin, full bar, and snack bar. You can also bring your own food and alcohol-free drinks on board. 

We're excited to announce that engineers from Dominion Energy will deliver a presentation about the project and answer questions during our trip. This trip is organized by your Virginia SWE sections and is not affiliated with or sponsored by Dominion Energy.

Colleagues, family members, and friends are all welcome to join the trip!
