Business Network for Offshore Wind Disappointed Over Denial of Nautilus Offshore Wind Project

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJ BPU) has rejected the Nautilus Offshore Wind Project, formerly known as the Fishermen’s Energy Atlantic City Windfarm in the U.S.

“Our position is that all responsible offshore wind energy projects at this point will play an important role in the growing US offshore wind market,” said Liz Burdock, President & CEO of the Network. “Although Nautilus was a small project, it has always offered significant value beyond the clean power in the form of optimizing the efficiency of the New Jersey offshore wind supply chain and business community.”

Nautilus was a proposed three-turbine, 24 megawatt (MW) wind farm for the waters three miles off of Atlantic City, New Jersey.

“We thank Paul Gallagher of Fishermen’s Energy and Doug Copeland of EDF Renewables for being active members of the Network and for fighting on behalf of this project and its potential supply chain for more than 10 years,” added Burdock. “Like Cape Wind in Massachusetts, Fishermen’s Energy and the Nautilus Project deserve much credit for being a US offshore wind pioneer and teaching the industry many lessons as they struggled to keep their project alive through the ups and downs of the New Jersey approval process.”
