A new report from a state agency, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), identifies how regional small businesses will benefit from the offshore wind industry coming to Massachusetts. Highlights include:
- A list of 320 businesses well positioned to create an offshore wind supply chain, including in engineering, legal, manufacturing, transport, and marine services industries
- An analysis of 18 potential manufacturing sites in the Fall River/Somerset, New Bedford and Boston/Quincy areas
"These initiatives will help maximize the economic development opportunities brought to the Commonwealth by offshore wind development," said MassCEC's CEO, Stephen Pike. "This information will be extremely valuable as major offshore wind companies evaluate potential investments in the state to support future offshore wind projects."
