Port of Argentia is a heavy industrial seaport located on the southeastern portion of the island of Newfoundland, Canada.
Formerly the site of a U.S. Naval Base, Argentia is being redeveloped with a diverse group of port users and tenants providing support services to key industry sectors, such as marine transportation, renewable energy, aquaculture, offshore oil, and mining.
Port of Argentia is North America’s first and only monopile marshalling port in support of US energy transition. Argentia’s strategic location and proximity to US offshore wind developments are key factors in securing contracts to receive offshore wind foundation monopiles for laydown and storage. Utilizing its existing infrastructure and vast land assets, the Port has dedicated over 70 hectares of paved runways, within 2 kms of quayside, to monopile marshalling.
