Shell-EDF Joint Venture Awards Onshore Cabling Contract for Atlantic Shores Project 1

Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind (Atlantic Shores), a joint venture between Shell New Energies US and EDF-RE Offshore Development, has selected Creamer-Jingoli to engineer and design the full onshore underground cable route for Atlantic Shores Project 1, located in New Jersey.

The early works contract scope includes a detailed design for the 12 miles (approximately 19 kilometres) of underground infrastructure running from the project’s landfall in Atlantic City to the point of interconnection in Egg Harbor Township, Atlantic County.

Creamer-Jingoli’s scope of work includes supporting field surveys, environmental sampling, robust subsurface utility engineering work, and site preparation for the duct bank installations that will house cables connecting offshore wind power to the New Jersey electric grid.

“Partnering with industry leaders who have proven experience in the local market is critical to establishing a thriving domestic offshore wind industry anchored in New Jersey. Atlantic Shores is thrilled to work with Creamer-Jingoli to continue creating great-paying Garden State jobs through critical near-term investments in New Jersey, said Joris Veldhoven, chief executive officer of Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind.
