Deepwater Wind Investing $1.5B in Quonset, Rhode Island Facility

09/13/2010
Deepwater Wind is investing approximately $1.5 billion to establish a regional manufacturing facility in Quonset, Rhode Island. The project will create 800 jobs. Deepwater will also relocate its corporate headquarters to Providence.

"This is much more than an energy project," said Rhode Island Governor Donald L. Carcieri. "This is about creating a new industry in Rhode Island; an industry that puts Rhode Island at the epicenter of the emerging alternative energy market."

The Deepwater facility will produce support structures for wind turbines and towers, and serve all of the company's Northeast projects.

The U.S. Department of Energy granted Quonset a $22.3 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant as a result of the Deepwater project.
