Vineyard Wind LLC has submitted a set of proposals for large-scale offshore wind projects as part of Massachusetts’ second Section 83C procurement for clean energy generation and transmission.
The proposals include a required 400 MW option and two options for the development of an 800 MW project.
“Vineyard Wind is very excited to submit these proposals, which offer significant job creation and port infrastructure investment opportunity for the region, while ensuring an attractive, fixed price for electric ratepayers,” says Lars Pedersen, CEO of Vineyard Wind. “We look forward to announcing additional details on this exciting project in the weeks ahead.”
The proposed project, referred to as Vineyard Wind 2, would be built in Vineyard Wind’s lease area and located south of the Vineyard Wind 1 project. The design for Vineyard Wind 2 features turbines in rows aligned in an east-west direction, with spacing of 1 nautical mile between turbines.
Vineyard Wind LLC, a 50/50 joint venture between Avangrid Renewables and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, is currently facing a federal delay for its Vineyard Wind 1 project. It was selected in 2018 as the winning bid under Massachusetts’ first 83C offshore wind solicitation.
