Cape Wind announce it will base its operations headquarters on Falmouth Harbor on Cape Cod.

Cape Wind President Jim Gordon said, “Cape and Islanders once lit the lamps of the world by harvesting whale oil. Pretty soon, every morning, workers will leave from Falmouth Harbor to harness the inexhaustible power of the wind for a healthier environment, increased energy independence and sustainable economic development.”



Earlier this week Cape Wind signed a Purchase and Sale agreement for East Marine located on Falmouth Heights Road on Falmouth Harbor.


Cape Wind President Jim Gordon identified the factors that drew the company to Falmouth, “We found a good waterfront facility in a protected harbor in a town that is already on a world stage for excellence in marine science with its institutions in Woods Hole and town officials were very helpful, it was the perfect combination.”

The operations jobs will be well-paid and will be drawn primarily from the local workforce.



Congressman William Keating said, “I am honored to be a part of today’s announcement by Cape Wind that they will base its operations headquarters in Falmouth Harbor. With the creation of fifty new jobs right here on Cape Cod and the staging area for turbine assembly across Buzzards Bay in New Bedford, Massachusetts’ role as a leader in offshore renewable energy is further solidified. Given Falmouth’s prime location and proximity to premiere marine science institutions, I could not think of a better selection for the headquarters of what will become our nation’s first offshore wind farm.”
