DONG Energy reports it is joining with Eversource Energy in a
proposed Massachusetts offshore wind farm south of Martha's Vineyard in an area that has the potential to develop at least 2,000 MW of electricity -- sufficient power for one million Massachusetts homes.
In their 50-50- partnership, DONG Energy Wind Power U.S. Inc. will develop and and construct the projects offshore generation and transmission assets. Eversource will develop and construct the onshore transmission system.
In April of 2015, DONG Energy secured newly assigned project development rights to a 300 square mile ocean area 15 miles off the coast of Martha's Vineyard that was made available for lease by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). In August 2016, Massachusetts adopted a comprehensive energy bill mandating that the state's utilities purchase 1600 MW of offshore wind power by 2027.
The companies expect the first power to be delivered in the early 2020s.
