UMaine Offshore Wind Projects Make BDN’s Top Business Stories of 2013

The Bangor Daily News included the University of Maine’s involvement with offshore wind in the article “Tragedy, trade and turbines: The top Maine business stories of 2013.” The article said UMaine made history in June when its prototype VolturnUS became the first floating wind turbine to provide electricity to the power grid. The university also made headlines for the competition between the UMaine-led consortium Maine Aqua Ventus and Norwegian company Statoil for subsidies to help develop an offshore wind farm in the Gulf of Maine.
