With this step, MHI Vestas want to demonstrate a long-term commitment to Massachusetts, advancing the progressive state’s lead in the burgeoning US offshore sector. Local politicians are delighted:

“The Baker-Polito Administration was proud to secure the largest single procurement of offshore wind by any state in the country, and MHI Vestas’ selection of Massachusetts for its North American headquarters is one of a series of initial steps that will support the Commonwealth remaining a national leader for this emerging industry,” said Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker. “We look forward to helping lead this new frontier for American energy and establishing a hub for offshore wind development on the East Coast through continued collaboration with MHI Vestas and the rest of the offshore wind industry.”

Massachusetts Senate President, Karen E. Spilka, said, “We are excited to welcome the headquarters of MHI Vestas to Massachusetts. This is another example of how, by working together to be a leader on environmental innovation, our Commonwealth can attract the businesses and technologies that will help us create a clean energy future. This is important not only to our economy, but to the long-term health of our environment.”

“I congratulate Vineyard Wind for moving ahead in the process with such a prominent industry leader such as MHI Vestas, and I welcome MHI Vestas to the Commonwealth,” said State Speaker pro Tempore, Rep. Patricia A. Haddad (D-Somerset). “Collectively we can now move forward in identifying supply chain vendors here in Massachusetts which will aid us in moving closer to our vision of clean energy and laying the foundations for this new industry.”

The company will open its new office in the coming weeks under the leadership of recently hired wind industry veteran, Jason Folsom to progress the plans for the 800 MW Vineyard Wind project off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard as well as exploring potential projects in nearby states. With a scheduled installation in 2021, Vineyard Wind will be the first large-scale offshore wind park in the U.S., and it will feature V164-9.5 MW turbines to provide enough wind energy to power 450,000 Massachusetts homes.

“We believe that the US offshore wind industry is starting a prosperous journey, and we are committed to working with our partners to contribute with our latest technology and experience to the transformation of the energy sector. Our office in Boston is our first step before establishing an actual supply chain,” said MHI Vestas Co-CEO Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.
