Offshore Renewables Initiative

Outcome: The Port of New Bedford is the first port of call for the offshore wind industry and the model for local supply chain integration.

The NBOC will fully capture and leverage the opportunities for long term investment and job creation, while leveraging the New Bedford Ocean Cluster’s maritime business network, unique infrastructure, and maritime know-how to attract investment and support the formation and growth of ocean economy businesses.

The NBOC will work collaboratively with a range of partners around the world to establish New Bedford as the central cluster of the offshore wind industry on the East Coast that includes the major facets of the industry such as port services, construction, training, research, engineering, front office and manufacturing.
