Reuters notes UMaine role in offshore wind development

In an article about the potential for offshore floating wind energy farms off the East Coast of the U.S., Reuters noted that New England Aqua Ventus, which aims to have a long-term power purchase agreement in place with the Maine Public Utilities Commission to start construction of 12 wind turbines by 2024, uses a concrete-based substructure designed by the University of Maine that reduces steel usage and sources material from local manufacturers.
