Neptune Wind intends to develop, construct and operate an utility scale offshore wind farm about 20 nautical miles south of the Massachusetts/Rhode Island border. The project, called Nomans Wind, is being planned as a 500MW generation facility and will employ next generation offshore turbines designed for the strong wind regime in this area.

Water depths range from 20 to 40 meters, requiring the use of a jacket structure foundation that can withstand harsh marine conditions. Having already qualified as a commercial energy leaseholder on the Outer Continental Shelf in the AMI (Area of Mutual Interest), Neptune Wind will submit a Nomination for the Nomans Wind proposed lease area by the October 3rd, 2011 deadline established by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement. The company plans to use a new portside facility in New Bedford, Massachusetts for some manufacturing and construction operations, but is also exploring port and other facilities in Rhode Island at Quonset Point to complement its New Bedford activities.
