Revolution Wind Advanced Foundation Components Complete


Ørsted and Eversource’s joint project, Revolution Wind, has completed construction of its advanced foundation components, a milestone for the first multi-state offshore wind farm in the U.S.

Rhode Island Gov. Dan McKee, the Department of the Interior’s U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Director Elizabeth Klein, U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement Director Kevin M. Sligh Sr., and other officials and community members joined Ørsted and Eversource to highlight Revolution Wind’s construction progress.

Assembly completion for the foundation components took place at Ørsted and Eversource’s construction hub at ProvPort.

“I am delighted to participate in today’s event, which highlights the tremendous progress that the Biden-Harris Administration has made, along with our state and industry partners, toward achieving our goal of deploying 30 GW of offshore wind energy capacity by 2030,” says Klein. 

“Today represents another step forward in providing clean energy jobs and investing in our coastal communities while strengthening America’s energy security.”

Once operational, Revolution Wind is expected to generate 400 MW for Rhode Island and 304 MW for Connecticut.

Rhode Island has also welcomed the ECO EDISON, which is set to be based out of ProvPort during project construction. The first-ever American-built, owned and crewed offshore wind service operations vessel will serve as a floating, year-round home base for the offshore wind turbine technicians. 

Revolution Wind is expected to be operational next year.
