AP Reports on Offshore Wind Turbine’s Performance

Boston.com, Seacoast Online, Winnipeg Free Press and WLBZ (Channel 2) carried an Associated Press report on the performance of an offshore wind turbine prototype that was deployed last summer off Castine. Habib Dagher, director of the University of Maine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center, said the 65-foot-tall turbine has performed as engineers expected even as the waves exceeded the platform’s design limits in November and December. The Free Press also reported the town of Bristol has appointed a Wind Power Advisory Committee that has created a website to inform residents on the offshore wind project proposed off Monhegan Island by Maine Aqua Ventus, which includes UMaine and partner companies.
