The Biggest Problem for Offshore Wind in the United States Might Be the Ports

April 9, 2018 by Bloomberg

By Jim Efstathiou Jr. (Bloomberg) — U.S. offshore wind developers have a space problem.

SNIPPET:

Massachusetts has solicited bids for as much as 800 megawatts of offshore wind.

Finding locations big enough to assemble the huge towers and turbines and handle ships that can deliver the hardware to offshore farms is the biggest hurdle for companies eyeing a slice of the emerging market, according to Jeff Grybowski, chief executive officer of Deepwater Wind LLC, which developed the first U.S. offshore project.

“Our real challenge is finding enough port space to fit these projects,’’ Grybowski said Monday in an interview at the BNEF Future of Energy Summit in New York. Deepwater Wind used four ports to build the five-turbine, 30-megawatt Block Island wind farm off the coast of Rhode Island, he said.
