At the end of Steel Pier, with the ocean as a backdrop, Fishermen’s Energy, US Senator Robert Menendez, State Senator Jim Whelan, Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian, Jose Zayas, US Department of Energy (“DOE”) Director of the Wind and Water Power Technologies Office and numerous officials, memorialized the $46.7 million of grant funding over four years to accelerate the commercialization of innovative offshore wind technologies in the United States. 

This funding will supplement the investment by Fishermen’s Energy principals to finalize construction planning, fabrication, and deployment to achieve commercial operation by 2016, of a demonstration windfarm of five turbines 2.8 miles off of Atlantic City, potentially the first offshore windfarm in America. 

“Clean, responsible energy development projects like this bring good-paying jobs to our state and help us modernize New Jersey’s economy,” said Senator Robert Menendez. “We must continue looking into innovative energy options – like clean wind and solar projects – that can one day become the next energy giant and can reinvigorate our workforce in the 21st century global economy.”
