Citing an inability to meet certain project milestones, a collaborative led by the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) seeking to build an offshore wind project in the Atlantic Ocean has asked the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) to remove the wind project from the system operator's queue.

According to Vanessa Baird Streeter, spokesperson for LIPA, the collaborative told NYISO it was not able to move forward with a study on system reliability for its NYC-LI Wind Project, a proposed 350 MW to 700 MW project located 13 miles off the Rockaway Peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean.

"In order for the collaborative to proceed with the system reliability impact study, very detailed equipment and modeling data - such as data for the turbine characteristics and interconnection information - and proof of site control and a signed interconnection agreement would have been required within 30 business days," she says.

The move by LIPA does not mean that the project is dead, as LIPA could resubmit the proposal to NYISO if the collaborative chooses to proceed.

In addition to utility players, such as Consolidated Edison, New York Power Authority and LIPA, the other partners in the offshore collaborative include the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, the New York City Economic Development Corp., the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
