Mayflower Wind has announced the filing of proposals as part of Massachusetts’ 83C III offshore wind energy procurement. Mayflower submitted multiple bids, each with an accompanying economic development package.
Under the largest scenario, which involves interconnecting 1,200MW at Brayton Point, Mayflower is committing to spend up to US$ 81 million on its economic development program. That spending would support the building of the offshore wind supply chain; provide for education and training of an offshore wind workforce; make investments in local ports, businesses, and infrastructure; as well as offer diversity, equity, and inclusion measures that include the hiring of specialised firms and support for low-income electric consumers, among other measures. Mayflower Wind is a 50/50 joint venture between Shell New Energies US and Ocean Winds.
