Ørsted Submits Proposal for Starboard Offshore Wind Project: Powering the State of Connecticut

Last Updated on 28th March 2024

Ørsted submitted a proposal to the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection for the new Starboard Offshore Wind project. The proposed project has a capacity of 1,184 megawatts (MW). It is anticipated to bring nearly USD 420 million in direct investment and expenditure to Connecticut, with the potential to power over 600,000 homes in the state. The project plans to utilize the New London State Pier for staging and assembly.



David Hardy, Ørsted Group EVP and CEO of Americas, emphasized Connecticut's significance as a critical hub in the U.S. offshore wind market, attributing it to the state's early investments and foresight. Hardy stated that Starboard Wind would further enhance the state’s leadership in this burgeoning American energy sector.


Starboard Wind aims to deliver reliable and affordable energy to New England residents while fostering job creation, supporting local businesses and workforce training initiatives, and bolstering the region's offshore wind supply chain. Simultaneously, it commits to conserving marine and coastal ecosystems.

The Starboard Wind project will leverage existing regional infrastructure utilized for the South Fork Wind, Sunrise Wind, and Revolution Wind offshore projects.


Ørsted has already made a final investment decision on Revolution Wind, a 704 MW offshore wind farm projected to power 350,000 homes. The project is currently underway, with offshore construction scheduled for 2024. Revolution Wind marks Ørsted’s second offshore wind farm in Rhode Island, following the Block Island Wind Farm, which currently powers 17,000 homes.
