Mass Tank Creating 100 Jobs to Support Cape Wind Project
"We are very excited to have the opportunity to participate in this first-of-its-kind manufacturing facility serving the offshore wind industry in the United States," said Carl Horstmann, Mass Tank CEO. "This project will help spearhead Massachusetts as a supply-chain leader in offshore wind, creating hundreds of jobs for the Commonwealth. This is a great example of the public and private sectors working together, and I'd like to thank Governor [Deval] Patrick and the Cape Wind team for making this possible."
Mass Tank will partner with Germany's EEW Group, a global manufacturer of offshore wind energy structural components. Cape Wind Associates has established a Letter of intent with EEW and Mass Tank to purchase monopile foundations and transition parts for the wind project.
The project will require construction of a new facility in Massachusetts. A site has not yet been selected.
