Skipjack Wind Farm (SJWF) EIS/ROD

The purpose of this project is to construct and operate a new offshore wind farm designed to help the State of Maryland meet its clean energy goals while satisfying the requirements of the Maryland Offshore Wind Energy Act of 2013. The SJWF will consist of up to 16 wind turbine generators (WTGs), submarine cables between the WTGs, and an offshore substation or integrated Cable Transition Tower. All of this will be located within federal waters on the outer continental shelf (OCS), in the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM)’s Renewable Energy Lease Area, approximately 19 miles from the closest point on land. The SJWF will also include an Operations and Maintenance (O&M) facility that will be located in or near Ocean City, Maryland.
