The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management recently published the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Revolution Wind offshore wind project. The proposed project is located off the coast of Rhode Island and when constructed would generate 880 megawatts of renewable energy. Congratulations to Ørsted and Eversource on reaching this permitting milestone!
EDR is proud to be part of the Revolution Offshore Wind project. Our subject matter experts have prepared the project’s Visual Impact Assessment and Historic Resources Visual Effects Assessment as part of the Construction and Operations Plan for the project, and are supporting the project team with strategic oversight for consultations under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
