UMaine Scientists Monitor Environment for Power Company’s Project, BDN Reports

University of Maine scientists have been participating in the environmental monitoring of a Portland-based power company’s tidal power project, according to the Bangor Daily News. Ocean Renewable Power Co. seeks to harness and convert energy from tidal waters into electricity and deployed a turbine generator in Cobscook Bay about a year ago as part of its pilot project. The company says its technology is compatible with the marine environment, but monitoring by UMaine researchers and others will continue.
