Ørsted U.S. Offshore Wind is sponsoring a project led by the Wetlands Institute (TWI) dedicated to rescuing stranded horseshoe crabs. The two parties will together execute this year's ReTURN the Favor NJ project, an annual campaign implemented by TWI and partner organizations to support the recovery of New Jersey's horseshoe crab population. According to TWI, each spring horseshoe […]
Ørsted U.S. Offshore Wind has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Rowan University in New Jersey for research on offshore wind. Under the agreement, Ørsted will support innovative offshore wind engineering clinics for Rowan University students and collaborate with them on research opportunities. Rowan University said that the MoU was signed on 27 March at its annual Faculty Research Day, which […]
The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) expects to announce the winner of the 1,100MW offshore wind solicitation at the end of June. NJBPU is currently in the process of reviewing applications. As reported earlier, three bidders responded to the solicitation, Ørsted with its Ocean Wind project, Equinor with Boardwalk Wind, and Atlantic Shores […]
Fugro will commence geophysical surveys at the Ocean Wind project offshore New Jersey this month, according to the project's Notice to Mariners. Fugro's 170-foot research vessel R/V Enterprise will carry out the investigations off the Atlantic and Cape May counties within the Northern section of the Ocean Wind lease area. The estimated duration of the works […]

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities has approved an order that implements Governor Phil Murphy’s executive order which calls for the full implementation of the Offshore Wind Economic Development Act (OWEDA) and to begin moving the state toward a solicitation of 1,100 megawatts of offshore wind energy capacity.
Offshore wind energy promises stronger breezes, cheaper real estate, and proximity to population centers. But difficulties in studying wind speeds over the open ocean leave energy producers unable to fully capitalize on the power of offshore wind. To address this problem, the Department of Energy funded a research collaboration, led by Dr. Thomas Herrington […]
