This announcement comes just two weeks after the completion of the first monopile foundation at Vineyard Wind 1, the nation’s first commercial-scale offshore wind project.

The two projects will be staged out of the ports of New London, Connecticut, and New Bedford, Massachusetts, using local labor and supply chain participants. Additional foundation components for South Fork Wind were fabricated in Providence, Rhode Island. Advancement of the South Fork Wind project includes additional key US milestones, as the project includes the first US-built substation for offshore wind and will be serviced by the ECO Edison, the first US-built service operation vessel for offshore wind. Broadcast today, Network CEO Liz Burdock spoke to CBS News about the SOV construction and what it symbolizes for the US Market.

“We have achieved steel in the water; America’s first two commercial-scale offshore wind projects have now both installed their first foundation components and will soon be delivering clean, reliable power to the grid” said Business Network for Offshore Wind CEO Liz Burdock. “In support of our industry’s advancement, a supply chain of shipbuilders, factories, small business suppliers, and labour unions is coming to life, creating jobs across the country and showcasing how the offshore wind industry is revitalising manufacturing communities from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes and East Coast. The US industry is just getting started, and the demand for vessels, parts, and labor means we need more suppliers, manufacturers, and engineers to get involved and help build this next great American industry.”
