Mitchell: Offshore Wind Industry Makes Sense For New Bedford
New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell , after a five day visit to European cities involved with offshore wind development, is convinced the industry makes sense for his city.
Mitchell and a 30-member delegation of business and government leaders, discussed offshore wind with officials in Germany and Denmark.
Just like those areas in Europe, Mitchell says New Bedford has the assets to make it work.....
Mitchell says it will take a lot of work, but he believes offshore wind development can happen in New Bedford.
The State is investing $100-million in construction of a new Marine Commerce Terminal in the city's South End.
When completed, New Bedford will serve as a staging area for Cape Wind and other offshore projects.
