Apex, which has another NYS office in Poughkeepsie, has completed more than $1 billion in wind-power projects nationally, including the 20 MW Steel Winds project on the site of the former Bethlehem Steel mill in Lackawanna. The company cited the incubator's proximity to Dunkirk harbor on wind-friendly Lake Erie as a strategic advantage.
Apex will be the 10th tenant and key strategic anchor of the incubator. For more information, please see the university's news release here or attached as a pdf.
Separately, the Dunkirk Observer website covered the graduation of three non-profit and social-venture tenants incubated under the university's HUD-sponsored Dunkirk-Fredonia Partnerships and Center for Social Entrepreneurship.
The three organizations are moving across the street to the handsomely renovated and privately owned Chadwick Bay Lofts.
