Description: 

Bay State Wind (BSW) proposes to develop, build, operate, and own (through one or more affiliated special purpose entities) an utility-scale offshore wind farm with capacity up to 1,600 MW located 15-25 miles off the south coast of Massachusetts within the Lease area (the “Project”).  The Project may be developed in phases, and will consist of between 107 to 267 wind turbine generators (“WTG”), associated inter-array cabling, new onshore and offshore substations, export cables, a battery energy storage system, and onshore works for connection to the wholesale electric grid administered by ISO New England (“ISO-NE”).

The request for approval for Bay State Wind has not been submitted.  BOEM has coordinated with stakeholders to develop a preliminary list of anticipated reviews and authorizations based on the information available at this time, however, the Permitting Timetable will not be fully developed until the Construction Operations Plan has been submitted.
