Vineyard Wind
Date: 2019-02-20
US offshore wind developer Vineyard Wind is reporting a new "Liberty Wind", 1,200 MW offshore wind project proposal in response to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority's (NYSERDA) solicitation of offshore wind project proposals.

The new proposal includes project size options of 400 MW, 800 MW, and 1,200 MW -- with the 1,200 MW project described by the company as "the most cost-effective option for New York ratepayers and one of the largest offshore wind projects in the world."

The proposed project would be sited 85 miles offshore from the nearest New York shoreline and be sub-sea connected to an existing Long Island substation. Vineyard Wind is collaborating with Wakefield, Massachusetts-based transmission developer Anbaric Development Partners.

Vineyard Wind is an offshore wind development company 50 pct owned by funds of Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and 50 pct owned by Avangrid Renewables, part of the IBERDROLA Group.

DEEP Details New England Offshore Wind Proposals (Ind. Report)
Deepwater Wind,Baystate Wind
Date: 2018-04-13
A day after two offshore wind developers announced proposals for Connecticut, state regulators released details of three total projects submitted this week, including one from New Bedford, Mass.-based Vineyard Wind LLC.

Vineyard Wind will compete against proposals announced this week by Deepwater Wind and Baystate Wind, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) said Wednesday. Vineyard Wind, joint venture between Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and Avangrid Renewables, would inject 190 MW of power into Connecticut from a proposed windfarm 14 miles south of Martha's Vineyard.

All three proposals are flexible depending on the results of similar bidding processes ongoing in Massachusetts.

Environmental groups and labor leaders have backed DEEP's request for offshore wind proposals, saying the region has the workforce and logistics to play a major role in a growing market in New England. But supporters of wind power say Connecticut is playing catch-up to Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Maryland — each seeking proposals from private developers for wind farms producing between 400 and 1,100 megawatts of power.
