Bluepoint Wind is an offshore wind project in the early stages of development located off the coast of New Jersey and New York. Our goal is to responsibly develop a 1700 MW project and to collaborate with regional stakeholders through long-term partnerships that benefit local communities, ecosystems and economies.
Bluepoint Wind is a partnership between Ocean Winds, an international offshore wind energy company created by EDP Renewables (EDPR) and ENGIE (50:50), and New York-based Global Infrastructure Partners.
Together, these companies have a successful track record of over 50 years of experience in development, financing, construction and operation of renewables projects, including more than 15 years on offshore wind projects. OW has offshore wind farm projects currently under development, construction or operating in communities all over the world, including in the UK, France, Belgium, Portugal, Poland, Korea, and – closer to home – in Massachusetts.
Bluepoint Wind plans to build an offshore wind farm within its ocean lease area located 38 nautical miles (nm) off the coast of New York and 53 nm off the coast of New Jersey. At full capacity, this wind farm will be able to generate 1.7 gigawatts (GW) of clean wind energy – powering up to 900,000 residential homes and helping NY and NJ meet their ambitious clean energy and carbon emissions reduction goals.
By harnessing its experience around the world, Bluepoint Wind will focus on developing projects that adapt to the unique needs and aspirations of stakeholders in the New York Bight.
Bluepoint Wind will endeavor to build projects, programs, and relationships from the ground up to ensure inclusive participation for generations.
Bluepoint Wind will invest in environmental protection, community beneﬁts, and workforce development.
Bluepoint Wind supports a Just Transition that prioritizes investment in historically disadvantaged communities.
Through science, technology and collaboration, Bluepoint Wind will transform challenges into opportunities to ﬁnd new solutions.
Bluepoint Wind will prioritize a safety-ﬁrst mindset at every project phase, treating our people, communities, and environment with care.
Bluepoint Wind is strongly committed to the responsible development of our offshore wind farm and multiple use of the lease area by commercial and recreational fisheries. Bluepoint Wind has assembled and will maintain a fisheries communications team, inclusive of a Fisheries Liaison Officer (FLO), for the duration of the Project (Table 1-1). Additionally, Bluepoint Wind will fund a Fisheries Industry Representative (FIR) to enhance communications with the fishing community. This Fisheries Communication Plan (FCP), which is required by BOEM under the lease stipulations (Section 126.96.36.199), is central to Bluepoint Wind’s fisheries engagement strategy and will be the foundation for the company’s efforts to develop and implement best practices and build collaborative relationships with the fishing community.
