Former Eversource site in New Bedford imploded to become wind facility

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WLNE) — Crews demolished the former Eversource site in New Bedford on Friday.

The 29-acre site previously held the Cannon Street power station, which was decommissioned in 1992.

It has since been renamed the New Bedford Foss Marine Terminal.

According to Foss’ website, the terminal “will provide storage and laydown yards for equipment and materials, berth facilities for tug and barge operations, and host crew transfer vessel and service operation vessel support services.”

The site that was used for electric and gas utility services for over a century will soon host offshore wind staging, operations and maintenance facilities.
