Manufacturing Facility Planned to Meet Needs of Offshore Wind Industry Lands in New Jersey 

The Americanization of the $100 billion offshore wind energy industry is now roaring to life at the South Jersey Port Corporation's (SJPC) Paulsboro Marine Terminal (PMT), where EEW American Offshore Structures is constructing a state-of-the-art factory to manufacture massive monopile foundations that support huge offshore wind turbines. EEW is the first company to set up a tier-one factory in the United States, with many more offshore wind companies to follow.
For the SJPC, it means jobs and an increase of 250,000 tons of steel cargo flowing annually through PMT. For New Jersey, it means a break away from the pack of states competing for the bounty of jobs and economic development in the green energy economy, with strong support from President Biden and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.

It's a game-changer in an industry pioneered and developed by Europeans who took the early risks to build and refine a highly reliable and maturing industry whose technologies are now being exported to PMT, giving New Jersey a competitive advantage.

South Jersey Port Corporation Awarded $6.6 Million Grant to Expand Electric Vehicle Fleet 

Governor Phil Murphy's administration is awarding $6.6 million to the South Jersey Port Corporation to support its ongoing efforts to reduce its carbon footprint, operate more efficiently, and be a better neighbor.
It's all part of the Governor's $100 million initiative to reverse climate change by turning to clean energy alternatives and to make New Jersey fully powered by clean energy by 2050.
The Governor is funding his initiative by leveraging proceeds from the reentry into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) and money from the Volkswagen Mitigation Trust Fund.
With this $6.6 million investment, SJPC will replace 23 pieces of older gasoline and diesel forklifts and cargo handling equipment with new electric-powered units and associated charging stations. SJPC aims to systematically convert all of its energy-consuming assets to zero-carbon within the next decade as suitable replacement equipment becomes commercially available.

South Jersey Port Receives Mid-Atlantic Marine Highway Designation 

In January, SJPC was officially notified that our Camden facilities have been added to the Mid-Atlantic Marine Highway by the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD).

"This designation will allow us to expand our service possibilities for both current and new customers," said Brendan Dugan, Assistant Executive Director/Director of Business Development for South Jersey Port Corporation.
