PROVIDENCE – Former Deepwater Wind CEO Jeffrey Grybowski has been named CEO of Maryland-based US Wind Inc., the company announced on Thursday.

Deepwater Wind developed the nation’s first offshore wind project off of Block Island. The company has since been acquired by Orsted A/S, who has plans to develop the Revolution Wind offshore wind farm for Rhode Island.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the US Wind team. We have big plans to deliver offshore wind to the state of Maryland,” said Grybowski in a statement. “This company had a strategic vision for offshore wind in the U.S. long before others in Europe made the jump to this market. We will build on that vision and together with strong financial backing from Apollo Funds, we will make US Wind a major player in the offshore wind space, as a nimble and entrepreneurial company that knows how to execute complex projects in the U.S.”

US Wind has an 80,000-acre federal lease area off the coast of Maryland.  In 2017, the company was awarded Offshore Renewable Energy Credits from Maryland for the first phase of its MarWin project. In total, the company’s lease area can support approximately 1,500 MW of offshore wind capacity.

“We are very excited to have Jeff lead our team at US Wind,” said Riccardo Toto, managing director of Renexia SpA, the principal owner of US Wind.  “His experience in navigating the complex development system in the United States is unmatched. We are building an innovative company at US Wind, and Jeff is the perfect person to lead it.”
