Deepwater Wind leading the way on offshore wind

Deepwater Wind, whose five-turbine wind farm off Block Island will come online this month, is moving quickly to establish itself as the early industry leader in the United States.
It’s one of three offshore wind developers expected to bid to build the first industrial-scale wind farm off the coast of Massachusetts. Deepwater Wind also is opening an office in New Bedford, whose Marine Commerce Terminal will be a primary site for assembling and transporting turbine components for 1,600 MW of wind power just south of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, as well as other projects along the East Coast

But Deepwater Wind, whose Massachusetts vice president is former New Bedford Wind Energy Director Matthew Morrissey, also recently acquired the lease for developing the 120 MW Skipjack wind project off the coast of Maryland and is hoping to build off Montauk Point, NY, as well as another project between Block Island and the Vineyard off the coast of Rhode Island.
