The U.S. Maritime Administration has awarded the Humboldt Heavy Lift Marine Terminal an approximately $8.7 million federal grant to support the project’s use for offshore wind.
Project developer Crowley celebrated securing the funding, as the grant is set to provide funds to get the project to “shovel ready” status, including design and permitting preparation costs.
“With the help of the Port Infrastructure Development Program grant secured by the Humboldt Bay Harbor District, Crowley looks forward to advancing our collaboration in the development of the Humboldt Heavy Lift Marine Terminal in close collaboration with the Harbor District, County, Tribal Nations and other key organizations and stakeholders,” says Bob Karl, senior vice president and general manager, Crowley Wind Services.
“We also thank U.S. Rep. Jared Huffman for his support of the project. We are thrilled to have supported the Harbor District in the grant process. This marks another milestone in our path toward giving the county, state, and the nation a new source of energy that respects the environment and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. We take the great responsibility of delivering sustainable and positive economic impact for this community to heart.”
