Thanks to the commitment of the partnership between Vineyard Wind and Marmon Utility, upgrades will be made to the Connecticut’s Kerite power cable facility. With a $4m investment from Marmon Utility, the specific needs of the Park City Wind project’s array cables will be met. The Kerite cable company has been selected by Vineyard Wind as the supplier of at least half of the project.
This is good news for locals since there will be around $40m in direct Connecticut expenditure as well as 35 permanent jobs at the Seymour facility. In addition, within the next 10 years there is anticipated growth of approximately 350 jobs in the facility as well as $400m in direct revenue.
The proposal for this project is to be submitted to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection three days from now.
