WLBZ, BDN Report on First Public Meeting on Offshore Wind Demonstration Project

WLBZ (Channel 2) and Bangor Daily News reported on the first of three public meetings being held by University of Maine representatives to share updates on the planned 12-megawatt offshore wind demonstration project by Maine Aqua Ventus GP LLC. During the first meeting in Friendship, university officials including Jake Ward, UMaine’s vice president for innovation and economic development, showed residents the research they are currently doing. Some residents, including State Rep. Jeffrey Evangelos, I-Friendship, were concerned over the effects the project could have on fishing in the area. Ward said they are studying the effects the turbines will have on fishermen, boats and wildlife. WLBZ also carried a report about Volturnus 1:8 — the UMaine-led DeepCwind Consortium’s test turbine off Castine — withstanding a storm earlier in November.
