The revolution for clean energy in Connecticut has begun! The Port of New London recently welcomed the first tower sections for Revolution Wind, the state’s very first offshore wind farm. This landmark moment marks a significant step forward in bringing clean, sustainable energy to Connecticut and Rhode Island.

The colossal cargo arrived aboard the mighty Rolldock Storm, a specialized heavy-lift vessel expertly escorted by the tugs of Thames Towboat of New London. These initial tower sections represent the first pieces of a massive puzzle, with additional blades, nacelles, and more towers expected to arrive throughout the year.

Revolution Wind is an ambitious project poised to revolutionize the energy landscape of the region. The 65-turbine wind farm, located 32 miles (51.5 km) southeast of the Connecticut coastline, will generate enough clean, domestic energy to power over 350,000 homes across Connecticut and Rhode Island. Upon its estimated completion in 2025, Revolution Wind will contribute significantly to a cleaner and more sustainable future for both states.

The arrival of these initial tower sections signifies the tangible progress of Revolution Wind. It’s a testament to the collective effort of developers, engineers, and maritime professionals who are working tirelessly to bring this vision to life. As additional components arrive and assembly progresses, the Revolution Wind project continues to gather momentum, promising a brighter energy future for generations to come.
