New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal to support wind turbines

Posted 5/13/13

NEW BEDFORD – Gov. Deval L. Patrick and Lt. Gov. Timothy P. Murray this month broke ground on the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal, which will become the first port in the United States equipped to support offshore wind-turbine deployment.

In a news release, the administration said the new terminal will solidify Massachusetts’ role as a leader in clean energy and energy efficiency. The terminal will be located inside New Bedford Harbor and protected by the hurricane barrier.

The multipurpose facility is also able to handle high-volume bulk and container shipping, as well as large specialty marine cargo. The news release said the terminal will be engineered to sustain mobile crane and storage loads that rival the highest capacity ports in the world.

“Investing in infrastructure just like this creates jobs now and a stronger commonwealth for the next generation,” Patrick said. “This is how Massachusetts claims its place as a hub for a new American industry.” •
