Orsted is preferred bidder in Connecticut tender

11 January 2019

Orsted has been given the go-ahead to start negotiations with power distribution companies in the US state of Connecticut for the sale of energy from its Revolution Wind offshore wind farm.

The Danish company says that it will start talks over a fixed price power purchase agreement (PPA) for 0.42 TWh per year, equivalent to 100 MW of installed capacity from the proposed wind farm.

The deal would bring the amount of capacity secured by Orsted for Revolution Wind to 700 MW, including previously awarded projects in Rhode Island and Connecticut, Orsted said.

“We’re happy to have been selected for contract negotiations as the only offshore wind project in this zero carbon RPF,” said Martin Neubert, Executive Vice President and CEO of Orsted Offshore. “Revolution Wind will contribute to Connecticut’s transition to clean energy and add to our attractive construction pipeline in New England which now totals 830MW.”
