NE4OSW Celebrates Vineyard Wind Construction Progress

HYANNIS, Mass. – August 2, 2023 – New England for Offshore Wind, together with the Environmental League of Massachusetts, co-hosted a visit to the construction site of the Vineyard Wind project with representatives of the project’s co-developer, Avangrid.

About 100 people from around New England boarded the Capt. John & Son II in Hyannis, Mass., and traveled to the construction site 15 miles south of Martha’s Vineyard. Once there, passengers could see a vessel that lays undersea cables for the project, a newly installed offshore substation – the first of its kind in US waters – and a handful of transition pieces affixed to their foundations and awaiting placement of their towers and nacelles.

Avangrid says that first commercial power delivery from the project will begin in October, with full project commissioning of the 800-MW project set for mid-2024.
