Ørsted and Eversource have announced they have submitted a joint proposal in response to Rhode Island’s offshore wind solicitation. The proposed 884MW Revolution Wind 2 represents more than $2 billion in direct economic benefits to Rhode Island’s blue and green economies.
If selected, Revolution Wind 2 will deliver unprecedented economic and environmental investments in Rhode Island, including:
  • Investments in the state’s existing ports, including $35 million to realize Quonset Development Corporation’s vision for a Regional Offshore Wind Logistics and Operations Hub at Quonset Point.
  • New, local union jobs to support the expanded construction of advanced foundation components at ProvPort.
  • Revolution Wind 2 will enable the construction of two new crew transfer vessels in Rhode Island to serve Ørsted’s U.S. portfolio, on top of the five already being built by Blount Boats and Senesco Marine as part of the JV’s Revolution Wind investments.
Ørsted Offshore Engineering Hub Center of Excellence:
  • Ørsted will open a new U.S. Engineering Hub in Rhode Island, creating roughly 75 new local engineering jobs in a facility that will serve as an Ørsted engineering center of excellence in the USA.
