Dutch subsea cable company WIND plans to establish a new cable storage yard in Rhode Island to serve the U.S. offshore wind industry.
The cable storage yard at ProvPort in Providence, Rhode Island, should be fully operational by the beginning of Q3 2022.
The main cable storage yard will be set up in Providence, with the potential to expand into other WTS facilities as the business grows and more space is required. From Providence, WIND will provide all cable and accessories storage and handling, while the project management will be carried out from WIND’s headquarters in Alkmaar, the Netherlands.
“We want to bring the experience that we have gained in the European energy market over the last 10+ years to the U.S., and extend our contribution to the global energy transition, in our own small way. I thank Waterson Terminals and International Longshoreman’s Association (ILA) for their passion, efficiency, and professionalism in getting us to this point and look forward to a lengthy collaboration together,” said WIND CEO Tom Nooij.
