TotalEnergies will hold 56 percent of the Attentive Energy project, with the rest held by Corio, an offshore wind developer owned by the green investment unit of the Australian conglomerate Macquarie, and the New York Light & Power (Rise).
The New York-based electricity producer will manage the project’s connection into the grid at its Ravenswood Generating Station, which will begin retiring its gas generators.
The Attentive Energy project is expected to be in operation by the 2030s, and the company says it aims to develop over three gigawatts of wind power.
The turbines will be located 54 miles from New York State and 42 miles from New Jersey, and will provide electricity for residents of both states.
TotalEnergies said the project will “support the US government’s goal to develop 30 GW of offshore wind in the country by 2030”.
