Good news on the way for gloom-laden US offshore wind sector as Vineyard Wind delivered its first mammoth, 13MW GE Haliade-X turbine to the lease site off Massachusetts.

The 800MW Vineyard, a joint venture between Iberdrola-controlled Avangrid and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), is the US’ first commercial scale array and will eventually install 62 of the GE turbines by the end of next year.
