Vineyard Wind, a joint venture between Avangrid, a member of the Iberdrola Group, and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), announced that contracts with two US-based companies have been signed to support the project at various stages of construction and operation. Maine based Ironhouse and Houston based Everline join contractors in Georgia, North Carolina, West Virginia and elsewhere, in the buildout of the nation’s first commercial scale offshore wind farm.

“As we build the nation’s first offshore wind farm, we are proud to engage an ever-increasing amount of the US workforce in each step of the process,” said Vineyard Wind CEO Klaus S. Moeller. “Vineyard Wind 1 is only the beginning. With each project, we will take a giant leap forward in building out this new industry, creating thousands of good-paying jobs and reducing the harmful effects of carbon pollution.”

Everline, a leading provider of energy compliance, technical and security solutions, will provide full Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) integration for the 62 wind turbines, a system that will connect the fields’ offshore substation, onshore substation, wind turbines and offices. The company will also be responsible for procuring equipment, configuring devices, installing and configuring SCADA software, testing and commissioning of all IT and SCADA Systems.

“This is an exciting project for Vineyard Wind, Massachusetts, and the nation. We are thrilled to bring Everline’s proven SCADA strategy and expertise to support the success of this offshore wind project,” said Woodrow Boles, Everline’s Director of Renewables SCADA. “This highly sophisticated renewable energy asset requires an equally sophisticated and comprehensive SCADA system to support it while protecting resources and investments efficiently.”

Additionally, IRONHOUSE will provide the commissioning oversight for the Onshore Substation, Wind Turbine Foundations, Inter-array Cables, Wind Turbine Generators and SCADA system.

“IRONHOUSE is excited and honored to announce that we have been selected by Vineyard Wind to perform the Commissioning Management Services for the Nation’s first commercial-scale offshore wind project, Vineyard Wind 1, said Brian Langlais, President of Ironhouse. “As a company located in Central Maine, we are proud to be able to support this project and provide unique and exciting career opportunities here in the Northeastern part of the U.S. With decades of utility and renewable experience and expertise, coupled with seasoned consulting engineers, managers, and field specialists, we meet client challenges to help them strengthen key capabilities, enhance performance, and execute programs with the utmost efficiency.

Vineyard Wind, an 800-megawatt project located 15 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, will generate electricity for more than 400,000 homes and businesses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, create 3,600 Full Time Equivalent (FTE) job years, save customers $1.4 billion over the first 20 years of operation, and is expected to reduce carbon emissions by more than 1.6 million metric tons per year, the equivalent of taking 325,000 cars off the road annually.

Vineyard Wind 1 will begin delivering clean energy to Massachusetts in 2023.
