It will provide a further 18 turbines – in the 2MW range – that have secured safe harbour status – meaning the project is deemed to have started construction and so is eligible for support under the US’s production tax credit (PTC) scheme.

The manufacturer will also service the wind farm for 30 years – the longest term Siemens Gamesa has been contracted for in North America.

It will begin to deliver turbines for Haystack in summer 2021, ahead of commissioning in the fourth quarter.

Siemens Gamesa had previously supplied Ørsted with offshore turbines for its US Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind pilot project, but has not provided the Danish developer with onshore turbines before.
