Ramboll Joins 2.6GW US Offshore Wind Project
US energy company Dominion Energy has selected Ramboll to support the development and engineering aspects of the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project off Virginia.
The 2.6GW offshore wind farm is expected to enter service by the end of 2026.
The Denmark-based Ramboll will, as the Owner’s Engineer, provide consultancy to Dominion Energy on all development and engineering aspects of the wind farm.
Ramboll was selected through a competitive process based on a combination of cost, performance and a track record of successfully completed offshore wind projects in 21 countries, the company said.
“Ramboll is a respected, global leader in the offshore wind industry and their expertise will prove to be a valuable asset as we develop our Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project,” said Mark D. Mitchell, Dominion Energy’s vice president of generation construction.
“Working with experienced offshore wind leaders, such as Ramboll, will help us bring clean, renewable energy to our customers and achieve our goal of net zero emissions.”
The selection of Ramboll comes as Dominion Energy gears up to complete construction on its pilot project – two 6-megawatt turbines to be installed this spring and scheduled to deliver power to the grid by the end of the year.

At the same time, the company is also preparing to perform ocean surveys to determine the commercial project’s potential impact on the ocean and sea life, which supports the development of the project’s Construction and Operations Plan for submittal to BOEM later this year.
“We are proud that Dominion Energy has selected us as its trusted partner for such a strategically important role in its ambitious offshore wind project,” said Tim Fischer, Ramboll’s global offshore wind director.
“The project allows us to not only bring to the table our experience in project development and owner’s engineering, but also in-depth expertise in detailed engineering and design across all relevant project packages, which makes us unique in the market and provides Dominion Energy with an effective one-stop-shop solution.”
