Vineyard Northeast proposes to construct and operate the Project located in Lease Area OCS-A 0522, which covers approximately 132,370 acres (ac) and is located approximately 31 miles from Nantucket, Massachusetts and 39 miles from Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
Offshore components of the Project will consist of up to 160 wind turbine generators (WTG) and electrical service platform (ESP) positions within the Lease Area with one nautical mile spacing between positions. The WTGs and ESPs will be supported by monopiles or piled jacket foundations.
Between the Lease Area and shore, the offshore export cables will be installed within two offshore export cable corridors (OECC), the Massachusetts OECC and the Connecticut OECC.
- The Massachusetts OECC will travel from the northernmost tip of the Lease Area to the Horseneck Beach Landfall site in Westport, Massachusetts.
- The Connecticut OECC will travel from the southernmost tip of the Lease Area to three potential landfall sites: Eastern Point Beach, Ocean Beach, and Niantic Beach; all near New London, Connecticut.
Onshore components of the Project will include export cable landfall areas, high-voltage direct current onshore cables, high-voltage alternating current interconnection cables, converter and booster stations, and onshore substation facilities in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
