New Bedford Officials Confident About Marine Commerce Terminal Progress
The New Bedford delegation that recently traveled to European offshore wind staging sites has formally announced their findings.
The delegation reunited Friday, saying New Bedford is on the right track with the Marine Commerce Terminal, as knowledge of red tape and other barriers in Europe is being used to smooth out the process on the homefront.
Leonard Coriaty of the Greater New Bedford Workforce Investment Board tells WBSM News the process now turns to what kind of job training is needed as the Marine Commerce Terminal emerges.
Coriaty says as companies under contract for the terminal are announced, he will be meeting with representatives and advocating for local employment opportunities.
Ground was ceremoniously broken on the terminal on Monday.
