Wind Energy – Vineyard Wind Turbine Components
Vineyard Wind recently received the first shipment of turbine components for GE’s Haliade-X 13-megawatt (MW) turbine at the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal.
The tower sections will be constructed at the terminal before being shipped out and installed later this summer.
“After a long road, the first day of component arrival is finally here,” said Vineyard Wind CEO Klaus S. Moeller. “This is great milestone for New Bedford, Vineyard Wind and the country. We’ve been working together with Mayor Mitchell for years to achieve this and are now finally seeing the result. I am proud to introduce this technology to the US and to see the many jobs that this industry will create in action on the site to today. This is only the first – much more is coming. And the vision of New Bedford at the epicenter of the offshore wind industry is coming to life today.”
