Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind (Atlantic Shores), a 50:50 partnership between Shell New Energies and EDF Renewables, has announced its selection of Vestas as the preferred supplier for its 1.5 GW offshore wind project in New Jersey, USA.
Vestas will provide its V236-15.0 MW offshore wind turbines, with installation expected in 2027. Vestas intends to establish a nacelle assembly facility at the New Jersey Wind Port in Salem County where the assembly and testing of the hub, cooler top, and heli-hoist modules will take place. In addition, Vestas will deliver a wind turbine service solution as soon as the project commences operations. These services will be executed from an operations and maintenance base established by Atlantic Shores in Atlantic City.
