Chapman Construction’s Electric Service Platform Installation at Vineyard 1 Underway


Chapman Construction Group was awarded and is underway with construction operations associated with the completion of offshore construction, installation and commissioning of Vineyard Wind 1’s electrical service platform. 

The company is working as a labor consultant and subcontractor with Tier 1 EPCI contractors Semco Maritime and Bladt Industries in the substation construction. 

Once the electrical service platform is fully installed, two submarine export cables will transport the electricity to export cable landing points in Barnstable, Mass. It will connect to a Vineyard Wind onshore substation in Hyannis and then interconnect with an existing, adjacent Eversource substation.

Due to the offshore location and the size of the turbines, Chapman crews and all trades workers have received Global Wind Operation training.

Onshore construction and staging operations for Vineyard Wind are taking place at the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal Facility. Offshore construction of the electrical service platform began in early July.

Chapman Construction Group’s project team is headed by CCGI principal Vicki Chapman and Dianne Smith.
