Crowley Takes Steps to Establish Offshore Wind Terminal in Gulf of Mexico
Florida-based maritime, logistics and energy solutions company, Crowley, has reached a Right of First Refusal agreement to potentially lease and develop an offshore wind terminal at Port Fourchon, Louisiana, USA.
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 said.
”Crowley’s forward-thinking vision aligns perfectly with our goals at the GLPC to further our role as a leading service supply port for all forms of energy, including wind.”
”We are thrilled to take the next step to welcome Crowley to Port Fourchon and our amazing slate of tenants and users,” Greater Lafourche Port Commission Executive Director Chett Chiasson said.
Through Crowley Wind Services, Crowley has begun development and planning for wind service 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.
”We look forward to working with the Port Commission to consider the next steps in serving the wind energy needs and goals of Port Fourchon and its communities,” said Bob Karl, senior vice president and general manager, Crowley Wind Services.
”The port is strategically located to serve as a hub for the supply chain and transportation required to create clean, renewable wind energy. We are committed to a process that is collaborative to create a sustainable energy solution.”
