Boston Wind Link will bring offshore wind directly to Greater Boston through a subsea and underground transmission system connecting to the substation at the Mystic Generating Station in Everett, MA. Mystic Generating Station is currently New England’s largest natural gas- and oil-burning powerplant, and the plant’s retirement in 2024 provides an ideal opportunity to substitute fossil fuel power with clean energy.
Brayton Wind Link
will bring offshore wind to a robust grid connection on Massachusetts’ South Coast at the site of the former Brayton Point Power Station in Somerset, MA. Reusing the legacy infrastructure from New England’s largest coal-fired power plant, Anbaric developed the Brayton Point Renewable Energy Center, combining offshore transmission and energy storage to help transform the site to an offshore wind hub. In May 2021, Anbaric and Mayflower Wind announced an agreement to use the transmission assets developed by Anbaric to bring clean, renewable offshore wind energy to Brayton Point.

Connecticut Wind Link will connect clean offshore wind power to Connecticut’s grid, enabling a 100% carbon-free grid and reducing the reliance on fossil fuel-burning power plants. Investments in local grid connections will drive economic activity and increase reliability and resiliency. Routing offshore wind power to the core of Connecticut’s grid will provide power where it is needed most, while avoiding the vulnerability and costs of overhead power lines.
