DNV GL to support Anbaric with New Jersey transmission bid
Anbaric Development Partners
will work with DNV GL to prepare the company’s 2021 bid for offshore wind
transmission in New Jersey.
Anbaric is a majority employee-owned, U.S.-based company focused on designing
and developing transmission projects on the bulk power grid and scaling
DNV GL is an international accredited registrar and classification society
with expertise in risk management and quality assurance, operating in more
than 100 countries.
The partnership comes ahead of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities’
(BPU) and PJM Interconnection’s (PJM) anticipated solicitation for offshore
wind transmission solutions from qualified developers as per the BPU’s
announcement in November 2020.
In November 2020, the BPU announced that New Jersey would become the first
state to fully align its offshore wind transmission goals with its regional
grid operator’s planning process. The agreement between the BPU and PJM
– known as a State Agreement Approach – is the first of its kind. A solicitation
schedule is expected in the coming weeks.
“Anbaric is thrilled to be working with DNV GL for this first-in-the-nation
opportunity. DNV GL is a respected industry leader whose team of experts
will assist Anbaric in submitting a winning bid to help build out the most
cost-effective, environmentally sound, and efficient transmission solution
for the state’s bold vision of 7500 MW of offshore wind by 2035,”
said Janice Fuller, President, Mid-Atlantic, of Anbaric.
