Skipjack Wind Farm
Skipjack Wind is a proposed 120-megawatt offshore wind energy project, which will produce enough electricity for approximately 35,000 households on the Delmarva peninsula. Proposed in response to Maryland’s Offshore Wind Act of 2013, the project will be located 19 miles off the coast of Delaware and Maryland.
As part of the permitting consultant team on behalf of Orsted, EDR prepared the visual impact assessment (VIA) and historic resources visual effects analysis (HRVEA) for the project. EDR’s analyses support the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s (BOEM’s) review of the project required under the National Environmental Policy Act and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. We are also supporting the project team with public engagement and stakeholder outreach.
