Ramboll is leading the team of consultants, including U.S. –based companies Keystone Engineering and PMSS, to design the foundations for the project.

The project plans to use 130 Siemens (NYSE: SI) wind turbines, each with a 3.6 MW capacity. It is expected to begin construction in 2013 and complete it by 2015. In March 2012, the U.S. Department of Energy unveiled a six-year, $180 million initiative for the development of offshore wind energy.
