Utility Dive notes UMaine, New England Aqua Ventus floating offshore wind project

Utility Dive noted the collaboration between the University of Maine and New England Aqua Ventus LLC (NEAV) to develop UMaine’s floating offshore wind technology demonstration project in an article titled “Maine regulators OK state’s largest renewables solicitation with 482 MW solar, but skip storage.” The project will consist of a single semisubmersible concrete floating platform that will support a commercial 10–12 megawatt wind turbine and will be deployed in a state-designated area 2 miles south of Monhegan Island and 14 miles from the Maine coast.
