Windpower Website Reports UMaine Research Partnership

The North American Windpower website reported on a new collaboration with the University of Maine Advanced Structures and Composites Center and the university’s Physical Oceanography Group and NRG Systems Inc., AWS Truepower LLC, and Leosphere SAS to create and deploy laser-based technological equipment off the Maine coast to monitor wind conditions. UMaine will design and build a floating system to house a modified WINDCUBE v2 LIDAR remote sensor that’s been adapted to a dynamic marine environment, the article said. The monitoring is part of research and development for a floating offshore wind turbine pilot project scheduled for 2013.
