GROTON, CT (WFSB) -- Thousands of new jobs are opening up in the growing wind turbine industry. Southeast Connecticut is gearing up to be a center of operation for building, erecting, and training people to deliver the eco-power source. A unique training facility is located in Groton, where a tower is used to help train thousands of new technicians and engineers needed to build, install, and maintain offshore wind turbine farms that Vineyard Wind is planning to build off the east coast. Each tower could be 300 feet high or higher off the water.


State Pier in New London, Connecticut, is receiving offshore wind component deliveries.
