Abstract: As the northeastern United States moves forward in developing offshore wind energy, marine infrastructure will be required to meet the logistical needs associated with receiving, storing, and preparing the large components used in constructing offshore wind farms. A key facet of this infrastructure, the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal, in New Bedford, Massachusetts, is designed to accommodate the large crawler cranes that will be expected to lift turbine components weighing hundreds of tons.
