Ocean Winds North America

OW Ocean Winds is an established developer of offshore wind projects present in 7 countries worldwide and is bringing to bear that experience, as well as the skills, background and knowledge gained through the work of its sponsor companies in onshore wind and solar to develop offshore wind projects in the United States.

ONGOING PROJECTS IN THE UNITED STATES

OW’s flagship project in the United States is Mayflower Wind, a joint venture with Shell. Mayflower has the potential to generate up to 2GW of clean energy, or enough to power nearly 800,000 homes.

Awarded during the New York Bight auction process in 2022, Bluepoint Wind is an offshore wind project in the early stages of development located off the coast of New Jersey and New York. In partnership with GIP, our goal is to responsibly develop this 1,700 MW project and to collaborate with regional stakeholders through long-term partnerships that benefit local communities, ecosystems and economies.

Golden State Wind is OW’s newest project in the United States, awarded during the first California lease auction in December 2022. The project is a joint venture with the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments) and will be located in the Morro Bay area off the central coast of California. When fully operational, the lease area could accommodate approximately 2 GW of offshore wind energy, generating enough energy to power the equivalent of about 900,000 homes.

UPCOMING PROJECTS IN THE UNITED STATES

The key U.S. Federal regulator of Offshore Wind has adopted an aggressive schedule for leasing new areas for this development – and OW will seek many opportunities to lease submerged Federal lands across the nation.

Upcoming project

ScotWind is the process by the Scottish Government intends to award new seabed areas for 10 GW offshore wind development. The process opened in Summer 2021, and results are expected by January 2022.

Ocean Winds (OW) has submitted a total of 5 bids. Three bids are in partnership with Aker Offshore Wind (AOW) and relate to floating offshore wind technology. The remainder two bids relate to bottom-fixed technologies and were submitted solely by Ocean Winds.

The joint OW/AOW floating partnership for ScotWind aims to develop 6GW capacity with an equivalent of up to £15 billion investment. We estimate that a successful project will create 5,000+ jobs and 200 apprenticeships. We are committed to establishing a fabrication yard in Scotland for steel fabrication of PPI’s WindFloat floater. Our plans will position Scotland as the global leader for floating offshore wind.

In addition, Ocean Winds alone, aims to build the proposed 1.8GW Hebridean Offshore Wind farm at ScotWind’s W1 plan option. The site will be a gateway to new steel fabrication industry in Scotland.

“When we embarked upon the offshore wind journey 10 years ago we were not the first in what was a young industry with much to prove. Since then we have demonstrated determination, resilience and leadership in all areas of the business and are rightly recognised as a strong competitor and leader in several key offshore markets.

Our reputation is built on the solid foundations given to us by our innovative, hard working staff who genuinely care about what we do. But now is the time to build upon this strong structure and deliver so much more.

The future of Offshore Wind is assured around the world and it is our aim to be at the forefront of this industry.”
