Positioning Rhode Island for Success in Offshore Wind Development

As we look to the future, offshore wind development is a clear path to economic growth for Rhode Island and Quonset will be at the forefront. The Quonset Multi-modal Off-shore Wind Transport Center (QMTC) will position Quonset as a wind energy hub for the North Atlantic. The current plans include an investment of $35 million to support the development, operations and maintenance of off-shore wind farms. The QMTC structure itself will be 146,250 s/f, including four aircraft hangars and space for eight tenants – all prepared to meet unique needs like docking crew transfer vessels and configuring the various components of offshore wind turbines.
