New Bedford called top wind staging area

The state’s top environmental and energy official said Wednesday that he is “absolutely convinced” that South Terminal in New Bedford will be the primary staging area for Cape Wind, despite the offshore wind farm’s developers exploration of other options in Rhode Island.

The port project, also known as the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal, was announced in 2010 as a coup for the South Coast fishing port that would bring hundreds of immediate and long-term jobs to the city. Since then, Cape Wind developers have met with Rhode Island officials to discuss the possibility of using the port of Quonset, in North Kingstown, for some staging work.
