The New England District Corps of Engineers has received a permit application from Erich Stephens representing Vineyard Wind LLC for proposed work in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Martha's Vineyard and within Nantucket Sound. Work regulated by the Corps will include the construction of up to 100 offshore wind turbine generators (WTGs), scour protection around the base of the WTGs, up to two electrical service platforms (ESPs), inter-array cables connecting the WTGS to the ESPs, inter-link cables between ESPs (if two ESPs are placed), and two offshore export cables within a single 23.3 mile route. The Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management (BOEM) is the lead Federal agency for this project. The project is identified as Docket No. BOEM-2018-0069.
