Turner Industries’ Gulf of Mexico Operations (GOMO) facility in New Iberia, Louisiana, has completed and successfully shipped the first set of wind blade racks, which are being delivered via barge to the Northeast. These racks will house offshore wind blades and are another example of Turner’s extensive portfolio of renewable energy projects.
When Turner opened the GOMO facility in 2021, it expanded the company’s fabrication capacity and made Turner the industry’s most capable module fabrication contractor. The site’s direct access to deep water and major interstates also means modules can be efficiently shipped across the country and offshore—allowing for upstream, midstream, downstream, and subsea fabrication.
