Media Reports on Advancing Wind Energy Project Plans

The Bangor Daily News and Maine Public Broadcasting Network were among the news organizations reporting that the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management has announced a public comment period on plans by the Norwegian energy company Statoil to erect four floating wind turbines 12 nautical miles off the Maine coast.  The University of Maine has been working with Statoil in research, development and testing of wind blade materials to be used in the pilot project.
