Equinor Advances Empire Wind 1 Offshore Project with Key Steel Deliveries

Equinor has marked a significant milestone in its Empire Wind 1 offshore wind project with the delivery of the first steel plates to 's Maasvlakte facility. These plates will be crucial for the fabrication of 54 monopiles and transition pieces intended for the 810MW offshore set to energize New York.

Located off the coast of New York, Empire Wind 1 is poised to play a pivotal role in the state's landscape, aiming to power up to 500,000 homes once operational. The project's progress follows Equinor's recent (PPA) with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), solidifying its commitment to advancing sustainable energy solutions in the region.

“The first transition piece for Empire Wind 1 is currently under manufacture in Roermond, marking a significant step forward in our project timeline,” stated a spokesperson from Equinor.

Sif's Maasvlakte site, where production of the monopiles is slated to begin in July, underscores the strategic importance of local manufacturing in supporting offshore wind initiatives. The facility's capabilities are expected to bolster production efficiency and supply chain resilience for Equinor's ambitious offshore wind endeavors.

Empire Wind 1 represents a cornerstone in Equinor's broader renewable energy strategy, aligning with global efforts to reduce emissions and promote sustainable energy solutions.
