A project to transform an East Setauket building into a support facility for offshore wind development is getting help from the Town of Brookhaven Industrial Development Agency. 

The Brookhaven IDA is providing economic incentives to Sunrise Wind LLC for its $37.8 million project to redevelop a vacant 59,525-square-foot building on 4.5 acres at 22 Research Way. The facility will house operations and maintenance for Orsted North America Inc. and Eversource Investment LLC, joint-venture partners and offshore wind developers.  

When complete, Sunrise Wind will provide 924 megawatts of offshore wind energy to the state, enough to power nearly 600,000 homes. The East Setauket facility will also be used to help support the joint venture’s broader portfolio of wind farms in the Northeast including South Fork Wind and Revolution Wind. 

The developers anticipate employing 65 workers at the facility within two years of its expected completion in 2024, according to an IDA statement. 

“We’re extremely pleased that Sunrise Wind is locating its operations facility in the Town of Brookhaven, playing a key role in the town’s clean energy leadership,” Brookhaven IDA Chairman Fred Braun said in the statement. “This project will bring new investment to the town and many good-paying jobs. We are proud to work with Ørsted and Eversource on their Sunrise Wind project and look forward to seeing this new operations and maintenance facility provide critical support for the regional development of offshore wind.”
