Revolution Wind Installs First Turbine Foundation


Revolution Wind, jointly owned by Ørsted and Eversource, has achieved its “steel in the water” milestone with the installation of the project’s first turbine foundation.

Once operational, the project is set to generate 400 MW of wind power for Rhode Island and another 304 MW for Connecticut.

“America’s offshore wind industry is scaling up, and the first steel in the water at Revolution Wind is a tremendous milestone for Rhode Island and Connecticut’s clean energy journey,” says David Hardy, group EVP and CEO Americas at Ørsted. 

“We’re building on our successful track record with the Block Island Wind Farm and South Fork Wind, and Revolution Wind can generate more than four times as much power as those two projects put together, demonstrating the enormous economic opportunity of offshore wind. Once again, we’re tapping the experience of our talented engineering and construction teams, and all our longtime local union and supply-chain partners to build this historic project for New England.”

Onshore construction for the project’s transmission system continues in North Kingstown, R.I.

The project is expected to be operational next year.
