The next seven years will see 10GW offshore wind farms be developed on the northern East Coast – including Massachusetts, New York State, Connecticut, New Jersey and Maryland. The first major offshore wind farm project is the Vineyard Wind project, which in phase 1 will generate 800 MW for Massachusetts.
Vineyard Wind awarded Cowi the consultancy contract for parts of the project. Consequently, the company is expanding its competencies in Boston by extending its current premises and increasing the staff. The extension aims to support the Vineyard Wind project and to meet the demand for renewable energy on the US market. Cowi expects to increase the staff from the current two employees at the Boston office to expected 80 -100 specialists within wind energy within approximately 3 years.
