Mayflower Wind files PPAs for 1.2GW offshore wind project off Massachusetts

Mayflower Wind has filed power purchases agreements for its 1.2GW offshore wind project with Massachusetts’ Department of Public Utilities for approval.

The 20-year deals cover the supply of electricity to Massachusetts’ three largest utilities starting later this decade.

Approval will enable Mayflower – a joint venture of EDPR, Engie and Shell – to invest almost $120 million over 20 years in port and infrastructure improvements, training and education and support for low-income power consumers.

Under the PPAs, Mayflower plans to deliver electricity to a single point – the former Brayton Point coal-fired power plant at Somerset, Massachusetts – which will enable the project to be developed faster.

It eventually plans to add a second connection point in Falmouth, Massachusetts to maximise the potential generation capacity of the lease area.
