USA: Rhode Island Governor Meets Cape Wind Officials Over Ports
Officials from the Cape Wind project have met with Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee to discuss ports that could be used for the offshore wind project.
Mark Rodgers, Cape Wind spokesman, told The Associated Press that one of the topics on the meeting was the possibility of the port at Quonset in North Kingstown to be part of the project. Besides the Quonset port, they are also considering the one in Providence.
If either of the two gets chosen, this could result in taking on a part of the work load that is planned to be done at the New Bedford terminal.
Governor Chafee hopes that the offshore wind project would bring jobs to the state and boost its economy.
