Parent Agency: Department of the Interior (DOI)
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) is preparing an environmental assessment (EA) for CWA’s COP to construct, operate, and eventually decommission an offshore wind power facility on Horseshoe Shoal on the OCS in Nantucket Sound, offshore Massachusetts. The Proposed Action calls for 130, 3.6± megawatt wind turbine generators, each with a maximum blade height of 440 feet, to be arranged in a grid pattern on the OCS in Nantucket Sound, just offshore Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket Island. This EA will be used for the purpose of determining whether a supplemental EIS is necessary before BOEMRE decides to approve, approve with modification, or deny CWA’s COP.
