AECOM to manage first offshore wind farm project in North America

Atlantic City, N.J., July 1, 2011 — Fisherman’s Energy awarded AECOM a contract for project and construction management, engineering, and procurement services for its Fishermen’s Atlantic City Wind Farm project.

Located about 2.8 miles off the coast of Atlantic City, N.J., the project will ultimately produce up to 25 MW of wind energy capable of powering about 10,000 homes.

Fishermen’s Energy, LLC, the project’s developer, selected AECOM to manage this landmark project through the phases of engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and start-up.

AECOM is currently supporting Fishermen’s Energy in the detailed project planning and scheduling activities as well as in the procurement of construction contracts and major equipment.

In addition to creating more than 200 construction jobs, it is a prototype for larger scale utility projects that are currently in various stages of development. AECOM has begun pre-construction activities and will provide project, procurement, construction and commissioning management services for the project.
