UMaine Narratives - Composite Materials Technology

UMaine’s offshore wind energy research and development initiatives

Last year, the UMaine Advanced Structures and Composites Center-led consortium was awarded the first phase of a potential $93.2 million DOE Offshore Wind Advanced Technology Demonstration Program. The consortium of industry leaders and national laboratories was one of seven national awardees selected from more than 70 competing proposals.

Each project received up to $4 million to complete the first half of the Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) phase. This April, DOE will select up to three projects for follow-on FEED phases — construction and installation, to achieve commercial operation by 2017. The final projects could receive $46.6 million each over four years.
