Avangrid announced that it has installed the first five GE Haliade-X turbines for the nation-leading Vineyard Wind 1 project, a critical milestone as the company prepares to deliver the first power from the project to the electric grid in Massachusetts.

Once energized in the coming weeks, Vineyard Wind 1, the first large-scale offshore wind project in the United States, will deliver approximately 65 Megawatts of clean energy. Enough to power 30,000 homes and businesses in Massachusetts.

Vineyard Wind 1 is an 806 Megawatt project, and when fully operational will generate enough clean electricity to power 400,000 homes and businesses in the Commonwealth. Before generating first power, Avangrid must complete several critical tests and technical milestones, including final testing of the array and export cables, and energization of the offshore substation which is one of the largest built in the global offshore industry. Vineyard Wind 1 remains on track to deliver first power before the end of the year.  

“It's incredibly exciting that Vineyard Wind is on the verge of generating offshore wind power for regular people. This will forever change how we think about power production in the U.S., unlocking a major source of electricity in the Northeast that can be copied by other coastal regions,” said Joe Curtatone, President of the Northeast Clean Energy Council.
