UMaine Mentioned in E&E Publishing Articles on Ocean Energy
The University of Maine was mentioned in two Environment & Energy Publishing articles that focused on ocean energy. The first article mentioned the new wind and wave laboratory being built at UMaine. W² is the world’s first wind and wave lab to feature a rotating open-jet wind tunnel above a 100-foot-long by 30-foot-wide by 15-foot-deep wave basin. The tank will be used to test offshore wind technology and marine hydrokinetic devices, according to the report. The second article cited UMaine’s efforts to monitor ocean energy’s effects on wildlife and fishermen.
