About the New Jersey Wind Port

The New Jersey Wind Port is a transformative, hub-style marshalling port project that will serve offshore wind projects in New Jersey and up and down the U.S. East coast.

The Port will be the first purpose-built wind port on the East Coast, with no vertical restrictions and easy access to more than 50 percent of the available U.S. offshore wind lease areas.

Development Plan


30-ACRE MARSHALLING PORT

CONSTRUCTION STARTING 2021 | TARGET COMPLETION LATE 2023

Current development includes: 

  • Dredging from the Delaware River Channel
  • Heavy-lift wharf with a dedicated delivery berth and an installation berth that can accommodate jack-up vessels
  • A 30-acre marshalling area for component assembly and staging
  • A dedicated overland heavy-haul transportation corridor
  • Potential for additional laydown areas

Construction is slated to begin in 2021 with a target completion of late 2023, in time to support the first round of New Jersey and East Coast projects.

POTENTIAL LONGER TERM EXPANSION

The Wind Port is intended to support offshore wind marshalling activities but, longer term, has the potential for additional expansion to include co-located offshore wind manufacturing activities – with a potential developable footprint of over 200 acres. Any potential expansion beyond marshalling activities would be dependent on market demand as well as other factors.

Long-term potential for:

  • 100+ acres of co-located space to attract investment from offshore wind blade, tower, and nacelle manufacturers
  • Additional berths, with the potential to accommodate a second marshalling tenant
