ALKMAAR, The Netherlands – WIND, the Dutch subsea cable specialist, has signed a long-term cooperation agreement with Waterson Terminals, a large terminal operator located in the state of Rhode Island with operations at ProvPort (RI), the Port of Davisville (RI) and Port of New Bedford (MA).
Having completed several US cable projects successfully, WIND says it plans to establish a new cable storage yard on the East Coast of the USA, similar to what the team has already achieved in Velsen/Eemshaven in the Netherlands and replicated in Taiwan and Korea.
The cable storage yard will be located at ProvPort in Providence, Rhode Island and is expected to be fully operational by the beginning of 3Q 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.
