Deepwater Wind has applied to federal authorities to build the largest proposed offshore-wind farm in the USA, a 200-turbine project in Rhode Island Sound.

The 1,000MW project, called the Deepwater Wind Energy Center, replaces a 350MW, 100-turbine proposal that was put forward by the Providence-based company two years ago. Under the new plan, Deepwater would also build an undersea transmission network that would stretch from Massachusetts to New York and connect to multiple states to which the company could sell its power. The wind farm would cost an estimated US$ 4.5 billion to US$ 5 billion, and the transmission system an additional US$ 500 million to US$ 1 billion. Deepwater’s turbines would be installed in four phases, with construction starting in 2014. The first 50-turbine phase would go on line in 2015. Subsequent phases would follow in consecutive years.
