Preparations are getting started for the Atlantic Shores offshore wind project in New Jersey waters. Shell and EDF, which hold the site lease licenses for a combined capacity of 2.5 GW, have hired Danish engineering consultancy Cowi to carry out design work on the establishment of electrical infrastructure tasks. The job entails both planning onshore and offshore substations as well as the design and layout of inter-array and export cable, Cowi writes in a statement.
"It's great that we can support the offshore wind industry at this important time when we see in states such as New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island taking a strong leadership position in the global growth of offshore wind development," writes Cowi Senior Market Director for Wind Energy and Renewables Jan Behrendt Ibsø.
