Two new offshore wind ports for New York Harbour

Attentive Energy One (AE1), a joint venture of TotalEnergies and Rise Light & Power (Rise), have announced plans for two offshore wind port facilities in New York Harbour, generating approximately $400 million in economic activity in New York State.

In connection with the 1,400 MW proposal, which AE1 submitted to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) in January 2023, the project has entered into a lease agreement with Arthur Kill Terminal (AKT) – conditional upon selection by NYSERDA – under which it will serve as a long-term master tenant of the site and assist in project development.

On Staten Island, AKT will be a wind turbine marshalling facility, sited on the Arthur Kill waterway, seaward of the Outer bridge Crossing and outside of all height restrictions. AKT's location makes it the only marshalling site in New York State and one of few locations on the East Coast capable of accommodating offshore wind construction activities without any vessel height restrictions.

AKT aims to create 435 jobs, building upon the borough's long-standing role in the maritime industry. These economic opportunities through AKT include hundreds of construction jobs, along with revenue generation and employment for neighbouring communities during decades of offshore wind marshalling operations.

Furthermore, Attentive Energy's proposal to NYSERDA includes $1 million in funding for the College of Staten Island – part of the City University of New York (CUNY) network – to bolster its offering of offshore wind and renewable energy training through its Continuing Education department, including Global Wind Organization (GWO) certificate programs.

In Queens, Attentive Energy will establish its permanent O&M Hub at the Ravenswood Generating Station, establishing control rooms, training facilities, and warehousing for the AE1 project, as well as upgrading nearly 1,000 feet of existing quayside to allow for docking, vessel operations, and crew transfer activities for offshore wind operations. Construction of the O&M Hub will provide a transition to new jobs that will remain on site for decades to come and will allow members of the UWUA Local 1-2 to continue powering New York.

Damian Bednarz, Managing Director at Attentive Energy commented: "Attentive Energy One's ports proposal helps solve future constraints for marshalling and O&M activity in New York City. With deep water access via the Arthur Kill, and no height restrictions, AKT will be the only offshore wind port in New York capable of accommodating future U.S. wind turbine installation vessels and to most efficiently perform transport of fully assembled turbine components. Similarly, the Ravenswood O&M Hub in New York City will generate jobs in connection with our project for decades to come".

These projects aim to ensure that the New York Harbour plays a leading role in development of renewable energy infrastructure. A coalition of elected officials, NGOs, and business leaders across New York City have also reflected their support for said projects.
