After the first steel going in the ground for Vineyard Wind and South Fork Wind during the summer of 2023, the train for the development of Offshore Wind in the USA has left the station. Although some project have difficulties, delays and even cancellations, the overall outlook is very positive. Various projects will be active in 2024, an overview below: 


Vineyard Wind 

A project entailing 62 turbines, delivering power to the state of Massachusetts, started the installation of monopiles in the summer of 2023. It has delivered first power in December 2023, and it is expected that the installation and full operation of the 62 turbines will be completed in 2024. 


Revolution Wind 

Starting installation in Q3 of 2024, the project entails a total of 64 turbines and will be delivering power to the state of Massachusetts. The final investment decision has been approved in November, and hiring for various offshore positions has started. This is a project that iPS Powerful People is already involved in and will have various offshore jobs for the near future. If you are interested, make sure to send your open application here.


Coast of Virginia Offshore Wind 

Also known as CVOW, in various phases will deliver power to the state of Virginia, the project entails 156 turbines and is expected to start with installing monopiles offshore in the summer of 2024. Due to the size of the project, it is expected that the project will last for at least 1,5 years. In the best case, the very first US flagged Offshore Installation vessel Charybdis, owned by Dominion Energy and currently being built in Brownsville, will install (part) of the monopiles and secondary steel offshore.
