A ceremonial signing will be held to inaugurate a historic Project Labor Agreement for New York labor to build a state-of-the-art offshore wind hub at the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal (SBMT). Elected representatives, union officials, project developers and suppliers will attend.

The press event marks the first Project Labor Agreement for offshore wind work in New York City. The agreement covers the revitalisation of SBMT as an operations and maintenance base for Empire Wind 1, as well as a world-class home for future offshore wind projects in the region.
