The Construction and Operations Plan (COP) includes information about the construction, operations and conceptual decommissioning plans for Dominion Energy's proposed 2,640MW offshore wind farm to be installed within a 112,800-acre Commercial Lease Area located 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach, which Dominion Energy obtained in 2013. Information about onshore and support facilities is included in the COP as well.
The company earlier this year completed
the construction of CVOW's first phase – the two turbine, 12MW pilot project, which is located adjacent to the Commercial Lease Area. The two turbines are operational while the project undergoes BOEM's technical review before officially entering service.
The company applied the valuable permitting, design and installation experience from the CVOW pilot project to its proposed commercial project. Pending approval by the State Corporation Commission, the CVOW commercial project is on track to commence construction in 2024, and upon completion in 2026.
