The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has announced it will initiate an environmental review of Vineyard Northeast’s proposed offshore wind energy project, located 29 miles offshore Nantucket, Massachusetts at its closest point.
 
BOEM estimates the proposed project would generate up to 2,600 megawatts (MW) of electricity. On March 25, BOEM will publish a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Construction and Operations Plan (COP) submitted by Vineyard Northeast. The approximately 132,370-acre Lease Area is located some 29 miles from Nantucket and approximately 39 miles offshore Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. Highlights from Vineyard Northeast’s proposal include the following:
  • Installation of up to 160 wind turbine generators, up to 3 electrical service platforms (ESPs), and one booster station in an adjacent lease area.
  • Two offshore export cable corridors – one to Connecticut and one to Massachusetts – and associated onshore transmission systems.
