Ørsted U.S. and Eversource have broken ground on their new office in New London, Connecticut.
The joint venture partners are opening the office in downtown New London to support their portfolio of projects across the U.S. Northeast and future work out of New London State Pier.
The RFP builds off of multi-resource solicitations in 2018 in which Connecticut bought 304MW of offshore wind from the Revolution Wind project, also being developed by Eversource and Ørsted.
Constitution Wind, which has been in development since 2015, participated in that RFP round, as well.
The two companies also committed to investing USD 57 million for upgrades to New London State Pier to accommodate the industry and create an offshore wind staging hub in Connecticut.
