Wind Technology Coming To Boston
The Department of Energy’s intends to award Massachusetts $25 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to accelerate development of the state’s Wind Technology Testing Center.
This new center will test commercial-sized wind turbine blades will help reduce cost, improve technical advancements, and speed deployment of the next generation of wind turbine blades into the marketplace.
The location of the testing center, at the Boston Autoport in Boston Harbor, was chosen because it provides a shovel ready site featuring proximity to substantial offshore wind resources, truck access, a rail spur and a 1200 ft. dock for transporting blades from ocean going vessels.
This is a project that is sure to produce hundreds of jobs!
