Dominion chooses turbine supplier for $7.8b offshore wind farm

Richmond-based Dominion Energy has chosen Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy S.A. to supply 600-foot-tall turbines for its proposed $7.8 billion wind farm off the coast of Virginia. Dominion aims to complete the 220-turbine wind farm 27 miles off the coast of Virginia Beach by 2026.

This wind farm would be the largest in the nation and is part of Dominion’s initiative to reduce carbon emissions by 55% over the next decade and 80% by 2050. If successful the project would produce enough zero-carbon electricity to power 650,000 Virginia homes.
