Deepwater Wind has announced plans for the Skipjack Wind Farm, a new offshore wind farm, 17 nautical miles northeast of Ocean City, Maryland, USA.
At 120MW, the Skipjack Wind Farm could be built in a single construction season, and developed more cost-effectively, and with considerably less risk, than a larger project. Deepwater Wind has secured the rights to acquire the site’s federal lease, subject to regulatory approval. The company has filed an application with the Maryland Public Service Commission for approval of the wind farm. If approved, local construction work could begin as early as 2020, with the project in operations in 2022.
