McGlynn discusses offshore wind research with Engineering News-Record

Engineering News-Record interviewed Alyssa McGlynn, a University of Maine graduate student studying mechanical engineering, about her offshore wind energy research. McGlynn’s work focuses on scale model testing of synthetic floating wind turbine mooring systems to validate design performance before full scale structures are deployed at sea. “If Americans want to maintain their energy-rich lifestyles and have a habitable planet, we need clean energy,” she said. The publication also highlighted UMaine’s graduate offshore wind program.
