Tetra Tech Wins Climate Change Business Journal Business Achievement Award for Advancing Offshore Wind Energy
Climate Change Business Journal (CCBJ) recognized Tetra Tech with a Business Achievement Award for Consulting & Engineering for our work in 2020 advancing offshore wind power.
Tetra Tech received this award for supporting Dominion Energy in becoming the first utility to install offshore wind turbines in U.S. federal waters, which also are only the second offshore wind turbines installed anywhere in the United States. Under the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Pilot Project, Tetra Tech served as the lead environmental consultant for Dominion Energy’s 12-megawatt offshore wind project located 27 miles off the coast of Virginia and facilitated all federal and state permitting work and construction compliance monitoring and training.
Tetra Tech guided many firsts with this clean energy project, including approval of a first-of-its-kind Research Activities Plan—an environmental report that is the basis for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management evaluation under the National Environmental Policy Act—and issuance of the first right-of-way grant for renewable energy activities.
