This report provides a review and identification of port infrastructure
requirements for offshore wind development, including vessel access and utilization, documentation of Maryland port capabilities, and analysis of the state of readiness for Maryland ports to service Atlantic Coast offshore wind system deployments. Over the next 1-3 years, the report recommends locating staging areas at Dundalk Marine Terminal or Sparrows Point Shipyard Industrial Complex (SPSIC), with Dundalk Marine Terminal being in a higher state of readiness. For the long-term strategy beyond 3 years, the report recommends establishing operations at Sparrows Point.
