Unsolicited Least Requests

On January 22, 2015 BOEM received two unsolicited lease requests from AW Hawaii Wind, LLC (AWH), the Oahu Northwest Project and the Oahu South Project.  Each project proposes an offshore wind facility with a capacity of 408 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy generated by 51 floating 8 MW wind turbines.  The energy generated by the projects would be transmitted to Oahu by undersea cables.

Public Engagement

BOEM established the BOEM/Hawaii Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Task Force to promote planning and coordination, and to facilitate effective and efficient review of requests for commercial and research leases and right-of-way grants for power cables on the Federal outer continental shelf (OCS). The OCS begins 3 nautical miles offshore Hawaii. Members of the Task Force include representatives of Federal, state and local government agencies, and offices that coordinate with Native Hawaiians.

Insane Plan to Put Windfarm Off Diamond Head

PBN March 21, 2015:  A Danish developer is planning to develop a major offshore wind energy project, which would include more than 100 turbines, in federal waters in Hawaii off Oahu’s northwest and southern coasts, according to a published report.

The project would be the first floating offshore wind farm in the United States. Thus far, there are no offshore wind farms up and running in the U.S. (There's a reason for this)

Alpha Wind Energy has turned in a lease request to the U.S. Interior Department for two 51-turbine project, which total 408-megawatts, according to Rechargenews.com.

The proposed project off Oahu’s South Shore would be located 17 miles south of Diamond Head in depths of up to 700 meters and lease an area of about 12,000 acres, while the North Shore project would be located 12 miles northwest of Kaena Point in depths of up to 1,000 meters and lease an area of about 11,400 acres, according to the report.
