    staten Island Proposals position borough as pivotal part of burgeoning off-shore wind industry

    March 19, 2023 - Joseph Ostapiuk -


      Staten Island’s offshore wind manufacturing sites are featured in multiple proposals for the state’s third offshore wind solicitation, serving as potential next steps to position the borough as a pivotal piece in the burgeoning industry.

      The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) released redacted proposals from six offshore wind developers. Two pitches include supply chain investment plans for the Arthur Kill Terminal in Richmond Valley and another pitch outlines a scenario utilizing the Staten Island Marine Terminal in Charleston.

      The agency is expected to announce awards for the record-setting round of competition this spring.

      “The high volume of quality proposals from leading global energy developers is a testament to the state’s ability to attract strong competition and significant investments in New York’s clean energy economy, ports, and the development of long-term domestic supply chain,” said a NYSERDA spokesperson.

      Part of the proposals, aiming to garner at least another 2,000 megawatts of offshore wind power in the state’s energy portfolio, include mandated supply chain investment plans that will create jobs and support sorely-needed manufacturing for the industry.

      Attentive Energy One, an offshore wind developer, centers the Arthur Kill Terminal as one of its three supply chain investment plans. The redacted proposal highlights the benefits of the facility and notes the project is among the most advanced seeking matching state funds through its supply chain investment plan process.

      Leading Light Wind, a separate developer, includes the Arthur Kill Terminal in all three of its supply chain investment plans. Detailed descriptions of the scenarios are redacted in the public version of the bid.

      Details are similarly scarce in the plans of a third developer — Community Offshore Wind — though that proposal does include the Staten Island Marine Terminal, which is the new moniker given to the former Kinder Morgan facility on the borough’s West Shore. It is unclear how many proposals will receive state contracts; however, New York will require substantial supply chain investments to meet its ambitious energy goals. During the last round of solicitations, the state selected two projects for contract negotiation.

      Multiple locations on Staten Island are slated to fundamentally reshape the borough’s West Shore and transform it into a major hub for the offshore wind industry.

      The Arthur Kill Terminal, a proposed staging and assembly facility that received a shout-out from President Joe Biden earlier this year, is poised to begin construction later this year before becoming operational in 2025. The site received $48 million in federal funding in the fall of 2022.

      NorthPoint Development, a Kansas City-based company, has ambitious plans for two separate sites on Staten Island’s West Shore — a Rossville property that contains the behemoth LNG tanks visible from the West Shore Expressway and the Staten Island Marine Terminal.

      Atlantic Offshore Terminals, the developers of the Arthur Kill Terminal, said the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, known as ULURP, is the next procedural step for the site. That process includes multiple city agencies and bodies, including the City Council, assessing the application for the site. That process would need to be mirrored for the other locations sprouting on Staten Island.
