The US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is planning to prepare an environmental impact study (EIS) for Avangrid Renewables’ Kitty Hawk North offshore wind project in North Carolina.

BOEM has published a notice of intent (NOI) in the federal register and will open a 30-day public comment period to define the scope of the EIS, which is the major permitting study required for the project’s approval.

BOEM will also review Avangrid Renewables’ construction and operation plans for the 69-turbine project, which will make landfall in Virginia Beach.

Avangrid Renewables president and CEO Alejandro de Hoz said: “Kitty Hawk can transform the energy mix of Virginia and North Carolina while delivering a triple-win for the environment, coastal communities and the region’s economy.
