Description: 

Bay State Wind (BSW) proposes to develop, build, and operate a utility-scale offshore wind facility.  The Bay State Wind Offshore Wind Farm Project (the Project) proposes to construct up to 110 wind turbine generators (“WTG”), up to 186 miles of associated inter-array cabling, two co-located offshore substations (OSSs), export cables, and an onshore operations and maintenance (O&M) facility with an associated Base Port during the operation phase.

The Project is located in federal water on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), specifically in Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) Renewable Energy Lease Area OCS-A 0500, approximately 14 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. The undersea Export Cable will traverse both federal waters and state waters of Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and ultimately making landfall within the Brayton Point Commerce Center (BPCC) located in Somerset, Massachusetts.
