Press release

Update on Ocean Wind 2

Following a decision by its Board of Directors, Ørsted will cease development of the Ocean Wind 1 and Ocean Wind 2 projects.

Delivering 1,148 MW of clean, reliable energy to the Garden State

Ocean Wind 2 is an 1,148 MW offshore wind farm, owned and developed by Ørsted, the U.S. leader in offshore wind. Located off the coast of southern New Jersey, Ocean Wind 2 will provide clean and reliable energy, local jobs, and infrastructure enhancements to the Garden State – further supporting New Jersey in its effort to realize its vision of becoming a world-class leader in the offshore wind industry.


Location: Off the coast of Southern New Jersey

Timeline: Construction to start in 2028

Capacity: 1,148 MW

Annual Production: Enough to power more than 500,000 homes

Owner & Developer: Ørsted

As a key element in New Jersey’s effort to achieve a clean energy future, Ocean Wind 2 will play a significant role in helping the State reach its goals of installing 7,500 MW of offshore wind capacity by 2035 and 100 percent clean energy by 2050. At 1,148 MW, Ocean Wind 2 will power more than half a million New Jersey homes. Together, Ocean Wind 1, New Jersey’s first offshore wind farm, and Ocean Wind 2 will deliver over 2,200 MW of offshore wind to the Garden State.

How to build an offshore wind farm

What exactly goes in to constructing an offshore wind farm – and how does power get transported to shore? From site investigations to installation of components at sea, we aim to keep our impact on the surrounding ecosystem to an absolute minimum.
