North American Windpower
The U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) says it has received unsolicited lease requests from two companies looking to develop wind projects offshore New York and Massachusetts.
The requests, which are for areas on the Outer Continental Shelf, are not in response to a formal call for interest, the agency notes. BOEM says it has finished its review of the requests and deemed them complete. Moreover, it has reviewed the applicants’ qualification materials and determined that the companies are legally, technically and financially qualified to pursue the leases.
