Governor Daniel J. McKee visited the Port of Davisville recently to cut the ribbon on the Port’s recently completed new berth. The Governor toured the construction at the Pier 2 modernization project, which will position Davisville to be a staging ground for future offshore wind projects. Governor McKee also toured North Atlantic Distribution (NORAD), which processes hundreds of thousands of automobiles annually before they are sent to car dealerships across the Northeast. 

“Quonset Business Park is a great example of what our state can achieve with collaboration from public and private partners,” said Gov. McKee. “The growth of the offshore wind industry in Rhode Island is exciting and the Port of Davisville will play a key role. I look forward to working with the Quonset team and private companies at the Park to usher in this renewable energy future for our state.”
