Kiewit Offshore Services, Ltd., the largest offshore fabricator in the U.S., designed and built the substation, which will be deployed at Ørsted and Eversource’s South Fork Wind project serving Long Island, New York.
“South Fork Wind continues to demonstrate the enormous power of offshore wind to create a new, American-based supply chain as we work to grow the clean energy industry here in the United States – spreading economic opportunity to workers and local communities across the nation,” said Mike Ausere, Vice President of Business Development at Eversource Energy. “Today, we are proud to mark yet another significant milestone that will bring the promise of a low-carbon future ever-closer to fruition.”
Kiewit built the 1,500-ton, 60-foot-tall substation at its Ingleside facility near Corpus Christi. The substation will play a key role in enabling domestic energy production, strengthening America’s energy independence and adding to the nation’s energy mix.
“We’re putting American ingenuity to work as we build out a domestic offshore wind energy supply chain with investments and job opportunities spanning the Northeast, down to Texas and across the Gulf Coast region,” says David Hardy, CEO Americas at Ørsted. “The completion of South Fork Wind’s offshore wind substation is yet another first for this groundbreaking project and moves us one step closer to the project’s first ‘steel in the water.’"
