UMaine in Partnership to Continue Developing Online Offshore Wind Database

The University of Maine and the U.S. Offshore Wind Collaborative (USOWC) have announced a partnership to co-develop WindHUB, USOWC’s new online resource for stakeholders interested in the emerging U.S. offshore wind industry.

The first phase of the Offshore WindHub brought together resources related to Atlantic coast states and federal activities in policy, technology, economics and siting. The second phase of WindHub’s development will expand the site’s content and improve its user interface.

UMaine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center will work with USOWC to provide site management and technical development.

“WindHub fills a real need in the growing offshore wind industry in the United States,” says Habib Dagher, the center’s director. “Expanding this resource to include additional features and content is the next step and UMaine is excited to be a part of it.”

Offshore WindHub gives users access to a searchable database of available information state-by-state and from key federal agencies and will be updated regularly. Future development phases will target new geographic regions, international resources, and analysis.

The Advanced Structures and Composites Center is a state-of-the-art one-stop-shop for integrated composite materials and structural component development. Located at the University of Maine, it offers in-house capabilities for developing a composite product or structure from the conceptual stage through research, manufacturing of prototypes, comprehensive testing and evaluation, code approval and commercialization.

To view the Offshore WindHub website go to offshorewindhub.org.
