Salem Offshore Wind Terminal

Crowley Wind Services

Salem Offshore Wind Terminal

The Salem Offshore Wind Terminal is a public-private partnership among Crowley, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and the City of Salem, with AVANGRID serving as the port’s anchor tenant through its Park City Wind project. The terminal will be a logistics and operations center for wind turbine pre-assembly, transportation, staging activities and storage of assembly components.  The terminal site project will result in the redevelopment of the former Salem Harbor Station, a decommissioned coal-fired energy plant creating more than 800 jobs (FTE job years) in the support of the construction and staging of wind projects and daily operations.

This project brings a new focus on a clean energy future, based on renewable power and with a commitment to positive action to mitigate climate change.

Construction of the wind terminal is now expected to start in 2024, with the terminal complete in 2026. You can find more details at the project website here.

Purple Air

In an effort to increase transparency surrounding operations at the Salem Offshore Wind Terminal, Crowley has installed active air quality monitoring on the site. The Purple Air Sensor installed on site provides active monitoring of air quality that reports to a live web-based dashboard system. This system is always accessible to the public. The Purple Air system is supported by MassDEP and provides active monitoring to a larger DEP network. More information and a live view of the region’s air quality can be found in the links below.

The Salem Offshore Wind Terminal gets its First Visitor

A monumental mooring moment occurred at the Port of Salem, Massachusetts. The Sea Installer – a DEME wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) –emphasized Salem’s exceptional location, space, and access on the U.S. East Coast, all aimed at supporting and advancing offshore wind projects. As the transformation of the Salem Offshore Wind Terminal into a prominent Crowley facility commences, we are filled with excitement for the future of offshore wind energy in the United States.
