Dagher interviewed by Public News Service about offshore wind prototype

Public News Service interviewed Habib Dagher, executive director of the Advanced Structures and Composites Center at the University of Maine, about UMaine’s offshore wind turbine array prototype, which successfully fed into the New England electric grid as part of a project called Aqua Ventus. “The advantages of floating is that you can put them beyond the horizon. So people don’t see them from land, you can also have a lot more places you can put them that would minimize impact on the environment, minimize impact on wildlife, and also minimize impacts on other users, such as fishing and so forth,” Dagher said. The Del Norte Triplicate shared the Public News Service report.
