Ramboll Named NJBPU Offshore Wind Strategic Plan Partner

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities selects Ramboll, a Denmark-based engineering and design consultancy, to coordinate and facilitate the development of the State’s Offshore Wind (OSW) Strategic Plan as called for under Governor Murphy’s Executive Order No. 8, which set the most ambitious goal in the US of 3,500 Megawatts of offshore wind capacity by 2030.

Ramboll will lead a team that includes Stantec Consulting Services Inc. (Stantec), Rutgers Energy Institute Wind Group (REI-Wind LESS/CAIT), BVG Associates LLC (BVGA), the Business Network for Offshore Wind (the Network), InGroup Inc. (InGroup) and Endeavor Fisheries (Endeavor). The OSW Strategic Plan will guide the development of offshore wind as a renewable energy source in the State.

This strong team of New Jersey practitioners and firms brings experience in all areas of the developing offshore wind market, both domestically and internationally. Their combined US and global experience and expertise provides a deep understanding of the offshore wind market and the specific implications for New Jersey.

According to Allan DeLorme, Americas President of Ramboll’s Environment & Health business, “Ramboll has been leading the industry since it began in Denmark in 1986 and developed across Europe and into the U.S. Many lessons have been learned from Europe that can be applied to the U.S. market, but only with a strong understanding of the local environment, and the energy generation and usage markets. Together, this team is uniquely suited to help New Jersey develop a smart and effective OSW Strategic Plan that meets the needs and addresses the concerns of all constituents, while ensuring that the State achieves its goal of being a leader in the U.S. offshore wind market.”

Global engineering, design and consulting firm Ramboll brings decades of New Jersey-based experience to the project, as well as extensive experience in the developing U.S. offshore wind market. Ramboll has a long history in wind energy. The firm designed nearly two-thirds of the offshore wind turbine foundations and many of the platforms operating across the world today, and has a strong presence in the U.S. and global onshore wind markets.
