EPI is thrilled to announce that they are supporting US Wind, Inc. (“US Wind”) with comprehensive UXO support in the Maryland offshore lease area.
US Wind, Maryland’s leader in offshore wind development, acquired an 80,000-acre federal lease area off the coast of Maryland in 2014. In 2017, the company was awarded Offshore Renewable Energy Credits (ORECs) from the State of Maryland for the first phase of its MarWin project. In total, the company’s lease area can support approximately 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of offshore wind energy capacity.
