The big international maritime company known as Crowley is working with the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District to build a big facility on the Samoa Peninsula, at the site of the old pulp mill, to help service the offshore wind industry.

The company has opened offices in Eureka — in the Carson Building, according to the company’s website — and it’ll be having a big launch party at the Wharfinger next Wednesday afternoon.

Press release from Crowley:

Crowley and the Greater Eureka Chamber of Commerce will announce the company’s new Wind Services office in Eureka, California, as part of its actions to develop an offshore wind terminal at the Port of Humboldt Bay. This event will herald the start of a partnership with the people of the region to be a U.S. leader in supporting renewable energy from offshore wind.
The U.S. logistics, maritime and energy solutions company is planning the facility to support renewable energy in concert with the community and the port. Services at the Humboldt Bay Offshore Wind Heavy Lift Marine Terminal will support tenants in the manufacturing, installation and operation of offshore wind floating platforms, the use of large heavy cargo vessels, and provide crewing and marshalling services in the Pacific waters.
