The big push for offshore wind in the US
We establish offshore wind power in the United States with the Vineyard Wind 1 project
Iberdrola is leading the development of offshore wind power in the United States with the takeover of Vineyard Wind 1, which with a capacity of 800 megawatts (MW) will become the largest offshore wind farm in the United States and whose development will boost local employment.
The park is 15 miles south of Martha's Vineyard and 34 miles south of the Cape Cod Peninsula.

Offshore wind power, key to Iberdrola's growth
Just as the Iberdrola group pioneered the development of onshore wind power more than two decades ago, the company is now leading the development of this technology, one of the keys to the company's growth.
Thus, of the 7,000 MW of wind energy currently under construction or secured with PPAs, more than 5,500 MW (78.5 %) correspond to offshore projects. Iberdrola already has three large offshore complexes in operation: East Anglia ONE and West of Duddon Sands in the United Kingdom (more than 1,100 MW together) and Wikinger (350 MW) in Germany.
In the past year, Iberdrola has invested in new growth platforms in other countries such as Poland, Sweden, Ireland, Japan and Australia, increasing the size of the group's global offshore wind portfolio to 31,700 MW.
