Vineyard OWFThe Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has announced it will begin conducting an environmental review of a Construction and Operations Plan (COP) submitted by Vineyard Wind, for its Vineyard Wind South offshore wind project.
 
The publication of the Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) opens a 30-day public comment period. During this time, BOEM will hold three virtual public scoping meetings and accept comments to inform the preparation of the EIS.
 
The proposed Vineyard Wind South project includes up to 130 wind turbine generators, two to five offshore substations, inter-array cables, and up to five export cables connecting to the onshore electric grid in Barnstable County, Massachusetts at up to three onshore substations.
 
If approved by BOEM, Vineyard Wind would be allowed to construct and operate an approximately 2,000 -2,300MW wind energy facility offshore Rhode Island and Massachusetts, which would be developed in phases.
