About the project

Providing power to 500,000
New Jersey homes


As the global leader in offshore wind, we are powering our planet’s transformation towards cleaner energy. We therefore actively seek to enter new markets to help us realize our vision of a world that runs entirely on green energy.

We entered the U.S. market in 2015 to build two large scale offshore wind farms: one in Massachusetts and one in New Jersey. The wind farms will harness world-class offshore wind conditions in the Atlantic Ocean along the Eastern seaboard.

But this is just the beginning.

We will continue to explore additional renewable energy projects on our mission to make the world a cleaner and healthier place.

We hold the lease for a large-scale offshore wind farm, located approximately 10 miles from shore. It comprises an area that could have the capacity of more than 1000MW, which could power a half a million New Jersey homes and businesses.

The project will leverage our extensive experience in building, constructing and operating off shore wind farms around the world.

Offshore wind for New Jersey

New Jersey has some of the best offshore wind conditions in the world. A third of the potential offshore wind resource for the U.S. is located on the East Coast, which has similar site conditions to successful existing Ørsted projects in the UK and Germany. Utilizing this energy resource reduces reliance on natural gas, increases reliability and reduces CO2 emissions

We will perform a geophysical survey to determine the best location for the wind turbines off the coast of Atlantic City. The effort will help determine the physical, biological and economic suitability of the site. The company is committed to using the best available data to inform decision-making, and to involving all key stakeholders in the planning process and throughout the life of the project, including environmental and fisheries organizations.
