Wind Farm Builder May Lease 65-Acre Brooklyn Terminal

Norwegian energy giant Equinor is considering a lease of the disused, 65-acre South Brooklyn Marine Terminal in Sunset Park, Crain’s New York Business reported. The company was selected last week by the state to build an 816-megawatt offshore wind farm that would supply electric power to New York City, part of a 1,700-MW commitment made by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Equinor would use the Brooklyn facility to handle the logistics and fabrication of the offshore wind turbines, Crain’s reported. The foundations on which the turbines sit will be manufactured upstate.

“The effort to bring hundreds of green manufacturing jobs to the Brooklyn waterfront through the reuse of South Brooklyn Marine Terminal as a staging ground for the offshore wind industry would be a major economic boost for the area,” said a spokesman for the partnership that was selected last year to operate the marine terminal.
