On the site of a remediated BP refinery, New Jersey is about to build a historic offshore wind factory.

On Dec. 22, Gov. Phil Murphy announced that New Jersey is set to receive a $250 million investment in offshore wind manufacturing – the largest offshore wind investment in American history. Two companies, Ørsted and EEW, will build an offshore wind equipment facility along the Delaware River that will help deliver offshore wind energy to 500,000 New Jersey homes.

“New Jersey has established itself as a leader in offshore wind time and again, with the country’s largest offshore wind project, a sizable commitment to building 7,500 megawatts of offshore wind by 2035, and the development of the New Jersey Wind Port,” said Environment New Jersey Clean Energy Associate Hayley Berliner. “These investments will speed our transition to a clean, renewable energy future.” 

Environment New Jersey will continue working to help the Garden State set a national standard for clean energy.
