Topics: DOMINION ENERGY U.S.
The first offshore wind farm to be approved by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) and installed in federal waters, and second constructed in the United States, was built safely and on schedule despite the worldwide impact from the coronavirus pandemic.
The turbines will now undergo acceptance testing before being energized later this summer and producing enough clean, renewable energy, at peak output, to power 3,000 Virginia homes.
Dominion Energy will apply the valuable permitting, design, installation and operations experience from the pilot project. ■
