The Shell-EDF joint venture (JV) behind the Atlantic Shores offshore wind project signed a letter of intent with New Jersey for marshalling space at the US state’s signature wind port.

Atlantic Shores will lease 35 acres at the New Jersey Wind Port (NJWP) in Salem County in the state’s southern reaches for marshalling its 1.5GW project slated to begin installation in 2026. The lease is expected to start in mid-2026 for a period of up to three years with options to extend.
