Company named finalist in Talent Management Leadership category

October 11th 2023 (Baltimore, MD) – Atlantic Shores Offshore Wind (“Atlantic Shores”), a 50:50 partnership between Shell New Energies US LLC and EDF Renewables North America, today announced that the company has been named a finalist in the 2023 Ventus Award. The Ventus Awards are hosted by the Business Network for Offshore Wind, the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a robust offshore wind supply chain in the U.S.

Atlantic Shores has been named a finalist in the Talent Management Leadership category, which recognizes those who nurture and develop a new generation of leaders.

Atlantic Shores has three offshore wind energy lease areas totaling more than 400 square miles under active development. Atlantic Shores Project 1 is the largest awarded project in New Jersey and the third largest in the United States. When completed, Atlantic Shores Project 1 will generate more than 1,510MW of energy, which is enough to power 700,000 homes. It’s estimated to remove nearly 4 million tons of greenhouse gas annually, which is the equivalent of taking approximately 770,000 cars off the road every year.

“I continue to be amazed by the ambition and dedication of this team,” said Joris Veldhoven, CEO of Atlantic Shores. “We are powered by the passion of our unique and diverse talent, and we’ll continue to invest in our people and communities.”

Atlantic Shores contributes to the industry by attracting and retaining a diverse talent pool to work in offshore wind. The company prioritizes a work culture that values diversity, invests in and cultivates emerging leaders, and embraces innovative outreach strategies that raise awareness about offshore wind and the many career opportunities the industry brings.

The annual Ventus Awards are the industry’s highest level of professional recognition, celebrating the people, companies, organizations, and work moving the global offshore wind industry forward. Awards are presented in ten categories designed to highlight the contributions and innovations of global professionals advancing the offshore wind industry.

All finalists will be recognized, and winners will be announced on November 9th at the Ventus Gala, the offshore wind industry’s premier celebration.
