Offshore #wind transmission developer selects Bechtel and Alstom to build historic project. #green #building

Bechtel will serve as EPC contractor for the first phase of the New Jersey Energy Link and will engineer, design, and install onshore transmission lines and substations: two onshore convertor stations and one offshore converter station that will make up the New Jersey Energy Link backbone. Bechtel will also oversee the installation of advanced HVDC converter technology and high voltage DC cables to bring power from the offshore wind turbines to the onshore converter stations. The project will also improve the reliability of New Jersey’s power grid and help lower electricity prices by delivering both offshore wind and conventional electricity to where it is needed and when it is needed along the coast, whether that be southern, central or northern New Jersey.
