Trident Winds, a Seattle-based offshore wind developer, has submitted an Unsolicited Lease Request (ULR) to the U.S. Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management (BOEM) for a commercial lease to pursue the permitting, development, construction, operation, and maintenance of the first floating offshore wind farm off the coast of Washington State. 
 
The Olympic Wind project is planned to be sited 43 miles off the coast of the Olympic Peninsula that will deliver approximately 2,000MW of energy. With the submission of the ULR for the Olympic Wind project, BOEM will conduct an initial review to confirm the applicant meets the agency’s legal, technical, and financial qualifications to hold a lease on the Outer Continental Shelf for commercial offshore wind energy development. Following confirmation of qualifications, BOEM will issue a public notice of a request for interest to determine if competitive interest exists for the proposed site.
