New London’s State Pier to potentially become offshore wind hub

The Connecticut Port Authority on Thursday approved a new partnership with State Pier operator Gateway and Bay State Wind – a joint venture of Eversource and offshore wind company Orsted – to create an offshore wind hub in New London. Gateway has already promised $30 million in infrastructure improvements and equipment at State Pier. The state has kicked in $25.5 million and an additional $10 million has come from the state Department of Economic and Community Development in the form of a revolving loan through the Manufacturing Assistance Act, Bates said.
