Sunrise Wind has received approval for its construction and operations plan (COP) from the US Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). This is the final permit needed from the federal agency to move the project towards the start of offshore construction.

The COP approval outlines the project’s one nautical mile wind turbine spacing, the requirements for the construction methodology for all work occurring in federal ocean waters, and mitigation measures to protect marine habitats and species.

Sunrise Wind recently finalised its agreements with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) on the project’s 25-year offshore wind renewable energy certificate (OREC) contract.

The Sunrise Wind team will now accelerate work on the onshore transmission system, with offshore construction ramping up later this year at the project site approximately 30 miles (approximately 48 km) east of Montauk, New York. The project is expected to be operational in 2026. Sunrise Wind is 100% owned by Ørsted and developed in cooperation with Eversource which sold its stake in the wind farm to Ørsted earlier this year.
