World-Class OSW Port
In Sunset Park, Brooklyn, NYCEDC and its partners have collaborated to activate the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal (SBMT) into a world-class OSW port facility. SBMT will be operated by Equinor, a Norwegian OSW developer, and utilized for staging and assembly, operations and maintenance (O&M), and as an interconnection point to support the development of Empire Wind 1 and 2, and Beacon Wind 1 projects. The activation of SBMT ensures that a sizeable piece of the burgeoning industry will land in New York City by the mid-2020s.
As part of their operation at SBMT, Equinor has established a $5 million fund to ensure that low-income populations, people of color, and local environmental justice communities equitably share in the workforce and business opportunities the industry affords.
NYC is showing how to embrace offshore wind. By partnering with industry, spurring the supply chain, including staging and assembling these large-scale projects, NYC will be a go-to hub for this exciting new industry.
