June 3, 2022 – The New Jersey Alliance for Action recently honored Sargent & Lundy for its contribution to the State of New Jersey’s Wind Port project, for which the firm served as engineer of choice.
The New Jersey Wind Port project is an important clean energy initiative to help New Jersey reach its 100% clean energy goals, fulfill its commitment of 7.5 GW of offshore wind energy, and accelerate its clean energy economy. It will also stimulate the state’s job growth by creating hundreds of new jobs.
Located on an artificial island on the eastern shores of the Delaware River and adjacent to PSEG Nuclear’s facilities, the 30-acre marshalling port is a first-in-the-nation infrastructure investment. It will provide a location for essential staging, assembly, and manufacturing activities related to offshore wind projects up and down the U.S. East Coast with no vertical restrictions and easy access to more than 50% of the available U.S. offshore wind lease areas.
Sargent & Lundy has been instrumental in assisting PSEG Nuclear evaluate potential impacts of siting a large industrial port facility adjacent to its existing Salem and Hope Creek Generating Stations. The firm is supporting PSEG with licensing reviews, external hazards assessments, and design services related to facility relocation.
Construction of the New Jersey Wind Port project started in 2021 with completion of the first phase of the development targeted for early 2024.
