PSEG has also entered into a limited transition service agreement with Ørsted North America to provide Ocean Wind 1 with construction management and environmental permitting services for the onshore substations and transmission cable installation scope of the project.

Ocean Wind 1 is the offshore wind project selected by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) through a solicitation held in 2019.

At its closest point, the project will be at least 13 nautical miles (about 24 kilometres) southeast of Atlantic City, New Jersey. Export cables are anticipated to make landfall in Ocean County and Cape May County, New Jersey.

In May, the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) completed the environmental analysis of the Ocean Wind 1 offshore wind farm.
