Iberdrola starts commissioning Vineyard Wind I offshore wind farmCopenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) and Avangrid, a Iberdrola company, have started to commission the Vineyard Wind I offshore wind farm. The facility, with 806 MW of capacity, has already begun to supply green energy to Massachusetts, USA.

The power from the Vineyard Wind project was delivered to the New England grid for the first time. As part of the initial commissioning process, at 11.52 pm on Tuesday, January 2, 2024, one turbine delivered approximately five megawatts of power, with additional testing expected to happen both on and offshore in the coming weeks. The project expects to have five turbines operating at full capacity early in 2024. Power from the project interconnects to the New England grid in Barnstable, transmitted by underground cables that connect to a substation further inland on Cape Cod. Once completed, the project will consist of 62 wind turbines generating 806MW.
