Systematic has announced that its SITE software will be used by Dominion Energy, which is developing the largest offshore wind farm in the United States – the 2.6-GW Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) commercial scale project.  It is designed to help ensure the safety of personnel working in and around the 112,800-acre commercial lease area.

SITE is a cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) solution for planning transfers to and from wind farm assets, providing a situational overview for location tracking and monitoring the exact location of personnel working offshore. It was previously used by Danish developer Ørsted during its construction of the
Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind pilot project back in 2020 on behalf of Dominion Energy.

“Safety is one of our core values at Dominion Energy and using Systematic’s proven SITE technology to manage logistics for Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind will allow our crews to perform their jobs safely in an offshore environment,” said Michael Lundsgaard, Dominion Energy director of offshore wind.

According to Systematic, SITE is currently used at 32 offshore wind farms to manage logistics and safety compliance. Around 30,000 offshore workers have been inducted with SITE to work at offshore projects.

Claus Byskov, Systematic’s Senior Manager for Digital Transformation, said: “We are excited to partner with the pioneers of renewable energy. The potential for wind energy in the U.S. is huge and what Dominion Energy is doing here paves the way for net zero-emissions and creates a better future for all,” he said.

CVOW is the largest planned offshore wind farm in the United States, with a capacity of 2,640 MW. It is expected to provide power for 660,000 homes. Situated around 43 kilometers off the coast of Virginia, it is expected to be completed in 2026.
