Cape Wind permits list Quonset as staging area

Posted 7/1/13

NEW BEDFORD – Cape Wind’s federal permits list Quonset Point, in North Kingstown, as the staging area for a planned 130-turbine wind farm to be located in Nantucket Sound, according to The Standard-Times of New Bedford.

New Bedford’s South Terminal is the offshore-wind developer’s preferred staging site, if the port facility is completed within its 19-month timetable. Before it could use the new facility, Cape Wind would need to revise its construction plan with the federal Bureau of Offshore Energy Management, the paper reported on June 19.

“We are continuing to closely monitor the South Terminal project,” said Cape Wind spokesman Mark Rodgers.

The Mineral Management Service – the Bureau of Offshore Energy Management’s predecessor – conducted a lengthy review of Cape Wind’s planned activities at Quonset Point in its Record of Decision from 2010.

The review calculated how much nitrogen oxide would be emitted by Cape Wind equipment during its operation at Quonset Point. Prior to its approval, the permit was also reviewed by the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, which will require Cape Wind equipment use “ultra low” sulfur diesel fuel at Quonset Point. •
