Vestas 15-megawatt turbines to power New York Empire Wind project


Empire Offshore Wind, a joint venture between Equinor and bp, has named Vestas as the preferred turbine supplier for the 2.1 GW Empire Wind 1 and Empire Wind 2 offshore wind projects in New York, USA.

Vestas will provide 138 V236-15.0 MW turbines for Empire Wind 1 and 2, located 15-30 miles off the coast of Long Island.

This is one of the largest preferred supplier agreements to be announced in the USA, Vestas said.

With this project, New York, Equinor, bp, and Vestas are together bringing the USA one step closer to achieving President Biden’s goal of 30 GW of offshore wind capacity installed by 2030 as well as New York State’s goal of installing 9 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2035.
