Atlantic Shores offers wind solution for New Jersey’s energy target
The joint venture (owned by Shell New Energies US LLC and EDF-RE Offshore Development) has submitted a proposal to support New Jersey’s goal of reaching 11,000 MW of offshore wind energy by 2040. They own three offshore wind concession areas and would provide renewable energy to hundreds of thousands of New Jersey homes. According to the company, the proposal would offer “the most ready solution” for the third offshore wind tender and strengthen existing strategic partnerships.
“Today’s bid submission marks the culmination of more than four years of planning and research by the Atlantic Shores team to provide the most cost-effective, environmentally and socially responsible renewable energy solution for New Jersey,” said Joris Veldhoven, president and CEO of Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind. “We’re thrilled to be at the forefront of New Jersey’s clean energy transition, playing a leading role in helping the state reach its goal of 11,000 MW of offshore wind power.”
Atlantic Shores has also submitted a pre-construction infrastructure (PBI) bid.
