Wind Energy – USA
Today Vineyard Wind signed contracts with two US-based companies to support the project at various stages of construction and operation.
The companies are Maine-based Ironhouse and Houston-based Everline.
“As we build the nation’s first offshore wind farm, we are proud to engage an ever-increasing amount of the US workforce in each step of the process,” said Vineyard Wind CEO Klaus S. Moeller.
“Vineyard Wind 1 is only the beginning. With each project, we will take a giant leap forward in building out this new industry, creating thousands of good-paying jobs and reducing the harmful effects of carbon pollution.”
Everline will provide full Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) integration for the 62 wind turbines, a system that will connect the fields’ offshore substation, onshore substation, wind turbines and offices. The company will also be responsible for procuring equipment, configuring devices, installing and configuring SCADA software, testing and commissioning of all IT and SCADA Systems.
Ironhouse will provide the commissioning oversight for the Onshore Substation, Wind Turbine Foundations, Inter-array Cables, Wind Turbine Generators and SCADA system.
