Dagher Quoted in Engineering News Record Article on Proposed Offshore Wind Project

Habib Dagher, director of the Advanced Structures and Composites Center at the University of Maine, spoke with Engineering News Record about efforts by the UMaine-led DeepCwind Consortium to build a 12-MW offshore wind farm in the Gulf of Maine by 2017. Dagher, leader of the consortium, said VolturnUS 1:8, the floating test turbine the group deployed in June, has been performing “very well” with the team’s engineering predictions and is collecting important data. Mainebiz also reported on the consortium’s proposed offshore wind project in the article “Statoil’s departure leaves Maine with one offshore contender.”
