MIDDLETOWN, N.J. (AP) — A company proposing an offshore wind farm in New Jersey is investing $10.6 million in projects to help grow the industry's supply chain and support ocean-based technology startup businesses in the state.
Attentive Energy is one of four projects proposed in New Jersey's most recent round of solicitations for offshore wind projects. It is a collaboration between Houston-based Total Energies, and Corio Generation, with offices in Boston and London.
During an event at Brookdale Community College, Damian Bednarz, the company's president, said Attentive Energy will invest $6.6 million in SeaAhead. That is a company that supports ocean-related technology firms; it will establish a business incubator program in New Jersey.
Attentive Energy will invest another $4 million in technical support for small businesses at 11 regional small business development centers across the state.
