Dagher Comments on PUC in Offshore Wind Report

Habib Dagher, director of UMaine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center, was interviewed for a Bangor Daily News article about Maine Public Utilities Commission concerns about the profitability of an offshore wind-power project proposed by the Norwegian Statoil North America company. Dagher said PUC commissioners are not questioning the viability of offshore wind power technology, but rather the discussion is part of a complex negotiation process. UMaine is assisting Statoil in the development of windmill blades and parts.
