Humboldt Bay seeks wind rejuvenation

The Humboldt Bay Harbour, Recreation and Conservation District is seeking companies to develop, use, and occupy the Redwood Marine Terminal I at Humboldt Bay, California. The long-term goal for the terminal is to re-purpose the area into a terminal to support proposed offshore wind energy developments.

The site is considered suitable for a potential fabrication and construction port for offshore floating wind and an assembly port for Semi-Sub and Tension Leg Platforms. Anchor handling tugs, bulk carriers, and other offshore construction vessels can also potentially be accommodated, but may require upgrades to upland facilities such as crane capability.

The site includes a 48ft deep harbour entrance, approximately 6.3 acre 1100ft. length berth, wood dock, with approximately 75 acres of industrial land two warehouses, and a 2ton crane. It is currently being used for various purposes including aquaculture and fisheries storage which will be relocated. Interested parties can submit bids until 1st November 2019.

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) launched an ongoing Call for Information and Nominations last year to develop commercial offshore wind projects off the coast of California. A formal tender is due to be launched in 2020.
