Connecticut Port Authority launches website on State Pier developments

The Connecticut Port Authority on Thursday launched a website,, aimed at providing information on the planned $157 million transformation of State Pier. The website is managed by AECOM Technical Services Inc., the port authority’s construction administrator for the project. The project is being funded, with state support, by joint venture partners Orsted and Eversource and is expected to be completed by late 2022 and a serve as a base for wind turbine assembly and staging for several major offshore wind developments in the pipeline. The two existing piers — State Pier and the adjacent Central Vermont Railroad, or CV, Pier — will become one large pier and the relevant permit applications needed to start that work, which includes dredging, remain in the hands of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Skanska, a construction company working off of State Pier and supporting the work at Electric Boat across the river in Groton, is expected to complete its work by the end of the year, Kooris said.
