Siemens Gamesa is pleased to announce the next steps being taken with Dominion Energy subsidiary Dominion Energy Virginia for delivery of offshore wind turbines and 10-years of service at its 2.6-GW Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind commercial project.

 

An agreement has been reached planning to use 176 units of the world’s largest offshore wind turbine in operation, the SG 14-222 DD, and for an expected 10-year Service agreement. The agreement is subject to customary conditions, including required governmental permitting.

 

All items are anticipated to be successfully closed by Q1 2023. Installation of the mammoth project in waters off the coast of the Commonwealth of Virginia is expected to begin in 2024.

 

The Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind commercial project will also provide a large springboard towards realizing the goal established by the Virginia Clean Economy Act, which requires Virginia to have 100% clean energy by 2045. The project will begin contributing to this upon completion, which is scheduled by 2026.

 

Once online, the project is expected to provide enough clean energy to power up to 660,000 homes at rated wind speed, avoiding more than 5 million tonnes per year of carbon emissions compared to fossil fuel-based power generation.

 

This is another milestone agreement for the United States as it aims to add 30 GW of renewable energy by 2030, enough to provide clean, renewable energy to approximately 12 million average U.S. homes, or 10% of total U.S. households.
