Wind Port Project Update


In our regular meeting with the NJEDA, the following project update was provided for the Wind Port Construction project in LAC.

Currently there are 80 workers during the day and an additional 40 who work overnight.

NJEDA purhased 110 acres at $24.25 million from PSEG Nuclear, which enables Phase 2 of the project. 

NJEDA is currently in the process of identifying potential road improvement projects in Salem County to allow smoother access to the site.

An MOU has been issued for NJEDA to assist in funding the Salem County Office of Economic Development.

Atlantic City Electric is currently consulting to add a 13 mile line extension from the nearest substation to the Wind Port.  Although the site is adjacent to PSEG, electricity is supplied by Atlantic City Electric.

Parcel A of the project is 20% completed - soil strengthening & squeezing the water out of the soil.

Phase 1 of the concrete piles are complete.

Phase 1 dredging is nearing completion.

Demolition of the old bulkhead is complete.

Mechanical dredging begins in early September.

The Oldman's Creek pile fabrication facility is underway.  Piles will float down the Delaware to the Wind Port by barge.

Empathy has always been a critical skill for leaders, but it is taking on a new level of priority in today’s times. Far from a soft approach, it can drive significant business results for your company.

New research demonstrates the importance of empathy in everything from innovation to employee retention. Great leadership requires a fine balance of skills to create the conditions for employee engagement, happiness, and performance. Empathy tops the list of what today’s leaders must get right.

Full gourmet hot breakfast catered by the Salem County Vocational Technical School’s Culinary Arts Students.
