Equinor Scores New York Offshore Wind Award

Equinor was selected to provide New York State with offshore wind power in one of the largest renewable energy procurements in the U.S. to date. Under the award, Equinor and incoming strategic partner bp will provide 1,260 megawatts (MW) of renewable offshore wind power from Empire Wind 2, and another 1,230 MW of power from Beacon Wind 1–adding to the existing commitment to provide New York with 816 MW of renewable power from Empire Wind 1. This totals 3.3 gigawatts (GW) of power to the state.

The companies will partner with the state to transform the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal and the Port of Albany into large-scale offshore wind industrial facilities that position New York to become an offshore wind industry hub.
