Avangrid has announced the start of the wind turbine installation campaign for its 806MW Vineyard Wind 1 project in the US.

The installation campaign follows the successful transportation earlier this week of the first GE Haliade-X Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) from the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal to the wind energy development area more than 30 miles off the coast of Cape Cod.

“Over the past year, we have achieved significant milestones in the development of Avangrid’s Vineyard Wind 1, but the installation of the project’s first turbine stands as a singular landmark for offshore wind, clean energy, and climate action in the United States,” said Avangrid CEO Pedro Azagra.

The project will consist of 62 wind turbines to generate 806 Megawatts, enough to power more than 400,000 homes and businesses in Massachusetts.

Within the portfolio of the Iberdrola Group with over 41,000 Megawatts in operation, it is part of a collection of global assets including offshore projects in the United Kingdom, Germany, and France.
