A leading developers of electric transmission projects has forged a strategic partnership in their bid for offshore wind transmission in New Jersey.
Anbaric Development Partners announced will work with DNV GL, a top energy industry advisor, to prepare for a 2021 New Jersey Board of Public Utilities solicitation for offshore wind transmission.
“Anbaric is thrilled to be working with DNV GL for this first-in-the-nation opportunity,” said Janice Fuller, President, Mid-Atlantic, of Anbaric. “DNV GL is a respected industry leader whose team of experts will assist Anbaric in submitting a winning bid to help build out the most cost-effective, environmentally sound, and efficient transmission solution for the state’s bold vision of 7500 MW of offshore wind by 2035.”
Gov. Phil Murphy announced a $250 million investment in the offshore wind industry in December at the Paulsboro Marine Terminal.
The BPU said in November that New Jersey plans on becoming the first state to full integrate offshore wind transmission with their regional grid operators’ planning process.
Fuller is a former chief of staff to House Energy & Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone. She served as executive director of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee and as director of cabinet affairs under Gov. Jon Corzine.
