Under the award, Equinor and incoming strategic partner BP will provide generation capacity of 1,260 MW renewable offshore wind power from Empire Wind 2, and another 1,230 MW of power from Beacon Wind 1 -- adding to the existing commitment to provide New York with 816 MW of renewable power from Empire Wind 1 -- totaling 3.3 GW of power to the state.
As part of the award by NYSERDA, the companies will partner with the state to transform the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal (SBMT) and the Port of Albany into large-scale offshore wind working industrial facilities that position New York to become an offshore wind industry hub.
