New Jersey Offshore Wind Solicitation Project

Developed for New Jersey’s nation-leading 2021 Offshore Wind Solicitation, APT provided a proven fully undergrounded 3.6 GW transmission solution that will deliver clean renewable offshore wind power to over 1.5 million homes. APT’s solution is taking a community-minded approach, providing new revenue and investment, as well as local jobs throughout the state.

Economic Benefits for New Jersey Businesses and Local Communities

In addition to a new local revenue stream, APT will provide cost certainty through operation of the project, ensuring ratepayers get the best deal possible. APT will provide:

  • $1.5 billion in local economic benefit in New Jersey
  • Cost certainty for the anticipated 40-year economic life of the project.

Substantial Job Creation

APT’s exceptional union partnerships will create thousands of good paying construction jobs and, as part of the project’s commitment to New Jersey workforce development programs, will facilitate the training of local workers.

  • The project will create in New Jersey, over 1,000 jobs during the construction phase, and dozens of direct and indirect positions for the 40-year life of the project.
  • APT has partnered with a New Jersey Union coalition including Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters, Operating Engineers Locals 825 and 25 and Iron Workers Local 399 to ensure that its members receive well-paying jobs.
  • APT is advancing support for the NJ Wind institute for the further development of the local workforce

Community-Driven Approach

Buried HVDC cable technologies have been used for more than 80 years, and the combined cable system has been safely operated around the world. This solution provides an easier way to navigate through rights-of-way and avoid environmentally sensitive areas and New Jersey residents’ backyards.

  • The route will make initial landfall at a former industrial landing in South Amboy, avoiding beaches and other amenities. This area will be redeveloped for community use.
  • APT has secured support from the nine communities and key stakeholders along the route, as well as full site control for the three onshore converter stations at a site adjacent to the existing Deans substation.
  • The well-proven, scalable HVDC design uses a ±320 kV DC system rated for 1,200 MW. Building up to three of these HVDC circuits will enable a total of 3,600 MW to be connected to PJM’s bulk power system.
