Press Herald cites offshore wind project in editorial 

The Portland Press Herald mentioned a University of Maine-led initiative in the editorial, “Ocean wind power back on track in Maine.” Maine Aqua Ventus, a one-of-a kind floating wind energy platform, has the funding to build a full-size, one-turbine demonstration project, two miles south of Monhegan Island using technology developed at UMaine, the editorial states. It is on pace to be the first floating wind turbine in American waters, and if successful, the project could be replicated at commercial scale, providing clean electricity at competitive prices. The technology could bring offshore wind power to parts of the world where it is not now possible, according to the Press Herald.
