RI: Deepwater Wind Talks Suspended - Negotiations on Hold Posted by on

The Narragansett Town Council voted to suspend negotiations with Deepwater Wind, the developer of the renewable offshore wind project proposed for Block Island Sound.

Thomas Savoie, representing Local 94,of the New England Carpenter’s Union asked the council to avoid a delay in negotiations due to the potential for the creation of quality jobs.

”I believe that Deepwater has made a commitment to Rhode Island to bring jobs here. If they can be successful with their leases and get these projects up and running, they have potential to do more up and down the East Coast. They have the potential to move the industry forward and bring more jobs to Davisville and Quonset,” said Savoie. “We need jobs here. There are many skilled people here in Rhode Island who do not have good paying jobs. These are good paying jobs. They are long-term jobs and we could be on the forefront of building a new industry in Rhode Island.”
