Media Report on UMaine’s Plan to Deliver Wind Turbine Performance Update

Boston.com, WLBZ (Channel 2), WGME (Channel 13), San Antonio Express-News and News OK carried an Associated Press report about the University of Maine’s plans to deliver an update on the performance of its offshore wind turbine prototype that was deployed last summer off Castine. Habib Dagher, director of UMaine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center, is scheduled to speak Jan. 16 about the 65-foot-tall turbine at the University of Southern Maine. The Maine Public Utilities Commission voted Jan. 15 to approve the terms of an agreement between the state and Maine Aqua Ventus, which includes UMaine and partner companies, granting initial approval for the consortium’s offshore wind pilot project. The Bangor Daily News also published an editorial on the project titled “Maine’s offshore wind project is worth the risk.”
