The major construction activities would be
supported by onshore facilities, which are anticipated to
be located in
Quonset, Rhode Island (see Figure 2.3.2-1). Material and equipment would be
onshore, at existing port facilities in Quonset, Rhode Island, and
then loaded onto various vessels for
transportation to the offshore site, and
ultimately installation. Construction personnel would be ferried by
and/or helicopter depending upon weather conditions and other factors. Once
loaded, the vessels
would travel from Quonset through Narragansett Bay to
Rhode Island Sound to Vineyard Sound, North of
Martha’s Vineyard to the Main
Channel, a distance of about 63 miles (102 km).
The applicant has identified an existing, industrial port facility in
Quonset, Rhode Island as having the
attributes required for staging an
offshore construction project of the magnitude of the Project. The
Davisville Port & Commerce Park is located on Narragansett Bay in the town
Kingstown, Rhode Island. It is owned and controlled by the Rhode
Island Economic Development
Corporation (RIEDC). This site is a portion of
what once was a much larger government facility known
as the U.S. Naval
Reservation–Quonset Point, part of which is still actively utilized as a
and base for an Air National Guard Reserve squadron.
The Quonset Davisville Port & Commerce Park is an active marine
industrial site that houses several
industrial businesses such as General
Dynamics (shipbuilding) and Senesco (marine construction).
downsizing of the U.S. Naval Reservation – Quonset Point, the commerce park was
in order to develop prime industrial sites, create job opportunities,
and to improve the economic
conditions throughout the region.
