Equinor offshore wind bid wins in New York State
New York State governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced Equinor’s Empire Wind as a winner in the State’s first large-scale competitive offshore wind solicitation.
The 816 megawatt (MW) offshore wind project will bring renewable energy to New York consumers, contribute to the State’s ambitious renewable energy development goals, and provide significant economic benefits to New York.
Equinor’s 816 MW winning bid confirms the company’s role as a major contributor in meeting New York State’s renewable energy and climate goals including its goal of 9,000 MW of offshore wind by 2035. It also represents an important milestone for Equinor’s ambition of building an offshore wind core area on the U.S. East Coast.
The project is expected to be developed with 60-80 wind turbines, with an installed capacity of more than 10 MW each. Total investments will be approximately $3 billion, and the project will be able to power over 500,000 homes in New York, with an expected start up in late 2024.
