So far, Deepwater Wind has eyed three possible locations for their facility: New Bedford, Fall River and Somerset, all on the South coast in Massachusetts. The company wants to assemble the wind turbine foundations for its Revolution Wind Offshore Wind Farm in the state.

Deepwater Wind is committed to building a local workforce and supply chain for its 400-megawatt offshore project to create 2,300 regional jobs and nearly $300 million in regional economic impact.

“No company is more committed to building a local offshore wind workforce than us,” said Deepwater Wind CEO Jeffrey Grybowski. “We launched America’s offshore wind industry right here in our backyard. We know how to build offshore wind in the U.S. in the right way, and our smart approach will be the most affordable solution for the Commonwealth. This is about building a real industry that lasts.”

The construction activity will involve welding, assembly, painting, commissioning and related work for the 1,500-ton steel foundations supporting the turbine towers. Deepwater Wind is also searching for boat builders for the construction of purpose-built crew vessels.

“Deepwater Wind is building a sustainable industry on the South Coast of Massachusetts,” said Matthew Morrissey, Deepwater Wind Vice President Massachusetts. “With Revolution Wind, we are demonstrating that we can build the industry in Massachusetts while enhancing competition and keeping costs low.” The company has also built Block Island, the first offshore wind farm in the United States so far (Image to the right by Jeffrey Grybowski on Social Media).

The Revolution Wind project will be built in Deepwater Wind’s federal lease site southwest of Martha’s Vineyard. If approved, local construction work on Revolution Wind would begin in 2020, with the project in operations in 2023.
