PORT FOURCHON, La. — Crowley has reached a right of first refusal agreement to potentially lease and develop an offshore wind terminal during the Feb. 8 Greater Lafourche Port Commission board meeting in Cut Off, La.
The more than 40-acre site, encompassing over 2,200 linear feet of prime waterfront property, is expected to become the home of a purpose-driven offshore wind facility in the coming years. Located on Slip C, adjacent to Flotation Canal, the site is primed to help service the burgeoning offshore wind marketplace in the Gulf of Mexico.
Crowley Wind Services has begun development and planning for wind services terminals in Massachusetts and California, leveraging its land and sea assets, offshore operations expertise, third-party logistics capability, digital platforms and workforce development and training initiatives.
Bob Karl, senior vice president and general manager, with Crowley Wind Services, said, “The port is strategically located to serve as a hub for the supply chain and transportation required to create clean, renewable wind energy.”
