The offshore project off the coast of Virginia is to comprise 2.64 GW, making it the largest offshore project planned to date in the U.S. A long-term service and maintenance contract has also been agreed for the wind farm, as well as the use of turbines from the Direct Drive offshore wind turbine platform.

The final number of wind turbines and the turbine model have not yet been determined. All installations are expected to be completed by 2026. The agreement is subject to certain conditions, including Dominion Energy's final investment decision, U.S. government approval and other necessary approvals.

“Signing this preferred supplier agreement with Dominion Energy attests to the enormously exciting growth taking place in the U.S. offshore wind industry and across the globe. We’re thrilled to have been chosen to support them in their commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to once again do our part in combatting climate change on a global level,” states Markus Tacke, Siemens Gamesa CEO.

“Internationally, every Siemens Gamesa Direct Drive offshore wind turbine we install increases the impact made by the renewable energy industry in avoiding CO2 emissions from power generation. Locally, we help our customers provide cost-efficient clean energy as well as additional economic benefits,” says Andreas Nauen, CEO of the Siemens Gamesa Offshore Business Unit.
