  • Equinor Selected for NY Offshore Wind Project

More recently, the Research and Development Authority of New York State Energy has approved the construction of a marine wind turbine tower plant to be located in the port of Albany, said Marmen, who will participate in the work.

"The U.S. East Coast is one of the most attractive growth markets for offshore wind in the world".

Six consortia have pre-qualified to take part in the tender for Denmark's largest offshore wind farm Thor, the Danish Energy Agency said Thursday. That's enough to power about 2 million homes.

"Together, Equinor and the State of NY will create a robust offshore wind supply chain capable of manufacturing, assembling, and staging these projects at scale", said the company. "This fits so well into the energy transition".

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo today spoke of the state's plans for renewable energy projects in his State of the State address.

US states up and down the East Coast are pushing to build sprawling wind farms in the Atlantic Ocean to bring clean energy to dense coastal cities.

Under the award, Equinor and incoming strategic partner BP will provide generation capacity of 1,260 megawatts (MW) of renewable offshore wind power from Empire Wind 2, and another 1,230 MW of power from Beacon Wind 1 - adding to the existing commitment to provide NY with 816 MW of renewable power from Empire Wind 1.

The company previously won approval to provide NY with 816 megawatts from a project south of Long Island that's expected to go into operation in the mid-2020s.

The project approved last July provided for the development of a wind farm capable of generating 816 MW using 60 to 80 wind turbines, which is enough to supply around 500,000 households. The other project, east of Long Island, will have 1.2 gigawatts and be done in 2028, Kindem said.

Thor is the first of the three offshore wind farms agreed to be established in the Danish Energy Agreement from 2018.

Eneco and European Energy join forces with the goal of submitting a proposal for the Thor offshore wind farm tender. To that objective, they have established the joint venture, Swan Wind, that has been qualified by the Danish Energy Agency to participate in the tender on Thor offshore wind farm.

The cost of power from an offshore wind farm over its entire lifetime is about $115 per megawatt-hour, based on projections for projects that would go into service in 2025, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
