Description:

The Vineyard Wind project would involve the construction, operation, maintenance and eventual decommissioning of an up to 800 MW wind energy facility on the Federal Outer Continental Shelf approximately 14 miles southeast of Martha’s Vineyard.  Vineyard Wind’s construction and operations plan (COP) proposes installing up to 100 wind turbine generators, each with a capacity of between 8 and 14 MW. Foundations would be 100 monopiles or up to 10 jacket foundations and the remainder monopiles. The proposed facility would also include one or two offshore substations or electrical service platforms. The Vineyard Wind COP also proposes an export cable from the wind energy facility to one of two potential export cable landfalls: one near the town of Yarmouth and one near the town of Barnstable, both in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Onshore construction and staging would take place at the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal facility. The turbines would be located in water depths ranging from approximately 37 to 49 meters (approximately 121 to 161 feet).
