UMaine Receives Multi-Million Dollar Grant for Offshore Wind

Orono- Maine will welcome two off-shore floating wind turbines following the awarding of a multi-million dollar federal grant.
The University of Maine's Advanced Structures and Composites Center has been awarded the first phase of a $93.2 million deepwater offshore wind demonstration project.

The grant, which comes from the U.S. Department of Energy, will be used to develop and build two 6-megawatt floating turbines, which will be placed in Maine's coastal waters between 2014 and 2015.
With a 500-foot blade span, each turbine will be taller than the Washington Monument, and produce as much energy as four typical land-based turbines.
