BOEM to Discuss New Wind Leases Offshore Massachusetts

The US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) will hold a public seminar on 26 April in Sterling, Virginia, regarding the recently-announced proposed lease sale for a 390,000ha offshore wind energy area in Massachusetts.

According to BOEM, the Massachusetts Proposed Sale Notice Public Seminar will describe the auction format, explain the auction rules and demonstrate the auction process through meaningful examples.

In addition to the seminar, a webinar will be available to those unable to attend.

The event is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. local time and conclude around noon.

Published on 11 April, the Proposed Sale Notice (PSN) requests public comments on BOEM’s proposal to auction two lease sites offshore Massachusetts for potential commercial wind energy development. Lease OCS-A 0502 consists of 248,015ha and Lease OCS-A 0503 consists of 140,554ha.

In addition, the PSN requests the affirmation of continued interest from any prospective bidders already qualified for commercial wind energy development offshore Massachusetts, and submission of the required qualification materials from any prospective bidders that BOEM has not previously qualified for a Massachusetts lease sale.
