MA Wind Turbines Move Closer to Groundbreaking

WeatherCape-Wind-FarmNEW BEDFORD, Mass (WGGB) — Eastern Massachusetts moves closer to a groundbreaking on a clean-energy facility that would be the first of its kind in the nation.

Governor Deval Patrick is set to begin work on a project that will be the first designed to support construction, assembly and development of offshore wind projects.

Construction on the New Bedford marine commerce terminal will begin on Monday.

The agency hopes to be the staging area for the “cape wind” offshore wind project.
