Avangrid’s joint venture (JV), Vineyard Wind, has entered into a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) with the Massachusetts Building Trades and local union affiliates for the construction beginning later this year of Vineyard Wind 1, an 800 MW offshore wind project.

Avangrid, through its subsidiary Avangrid Renewables, is a leading developer and operator of onshore wind and solar and is pioneering the development of offshore wind in the US.

“We are proud to work with organized labor to make history by building the nation’s first large-scale offshore wind project, Vineyard Wind 1,” said Dennis V. Arriola, CEO of Avangrid. “The PLA is a triple-win for workers, our communities and industry and sets a strong precedent as we build the offshore wind energy infrastructure in the U.S. Investing in the workforce that will build the clean and connected future creates strong, sustainable communities and will enable the long-term growth and success of the offshore wind industry in this country.”

The agreement ensures fair, family-supporting wages and thorough workplace protections for the workers who will be constructing Vineyard Wind 1, the nation’s first commercial-scale offshore wind project.

The PLA also ensures that there will be talented and skilled laborers available during construction to meet the project’s needs and deliver Vineyard Wind 1 on schedule.
