Delays In Permitting For New Bedford Terminal Lead Cape Wind To Rhode Island

TSM

Officials with the Cape Wind offshore wind project planned for Massachusetts have met with port officials in Rhode Island, and a spokesman says it’s an ‘open question’ whether a terminal planned for New Bedford will be ready to use as the wind farm’s construction staging area.

Cape Wind spokesman Mark Rodgers tells the Associated Press, officials with Cape Wind and the Port At Quonset met two weeks ago.  He says among the topics they discussed was whether Quonset would be able to take on at least some work Cape Wind planned in New Bedford if it can’t be done there.  Rodgers says they remain optimistic about New Bedford but permitting was slow for the planned $35 million terminal, and they need to keep their options open.

According to Mayor Jon Mitchell, state officials insist the terminal will be completed in time for all of the work to be done in New Bedford.  (Associated Press)
