Dimeo Construction Company was awarded the Offshore Wind Facility at the Port of Providence in Rhode Island. The project consists of three single story modular operations buildings and two high bay manufacturing facilities will be used to assemble offshore wind generators.
The project will be the base for advanced fabrication and assembly of foundation platforms for wind projects planned in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York. The project is part of Orsted A/S and Eversource Energy’s forty million investment in ports in Providence and Quonset for a slew of major wind farm projects.
Construction and related site improvements will be completed by local union labor, thanks to a project labor agreement between Dimeo and the Rhode Island Building and Construction Trades Council.
