US utility Dominion Energy has selected Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy for the provision of turbines to be used in developing what is considered to be the largest offshore wind energy project in the US. The offshore wind energy project will be located 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach and produce enough energy to power 650,000 homes. The 2,600MW project is expected to be completed in 2026 and will help Virginia state to create jobs and achieve energy sustainability goals. "Virginia state agencies have been tasked to develop a plan to produce 30% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030. Offshore wind is a fast-growing and important contributor to meet this goal," says Steve Dayney, Head of Offshore North America at Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy.
