Tidal Research Noted in Newspaper Report

Seacoast Online, a website of newspapers covering southern Maine and northern New Hampshire, had a story about York, Maine company Rohrer Technologies Inc., which received in February a $25,000 Maine Technology Institute grant to work with UMaine’s Department of Mechanical Engineering. The company and UMaine will conduct advanced computer simulations that will help fine-tune the design of a device to harness tidal power for electricity. John Rohrer, who owns the company, said he felt it was appropriate to work with UMaine because the grant money is coming from Maine taxpayers.
