Floating Offshore Wind Power Project highlighted in recent webinar

The May 11 presentation by Dr. Habib Dagher, executive director of UMaine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center, on UMaine’s offshore wind program, can be viewed online. UMaine is collaborating with New England Aqua Ventus LLC, a joint venture between Diamond Offshore Wind, a subsidiary of the Mitsubishi Corporation, and RWE Renewables, the second-largest company in offshore wind globally, to develop an 11-megawatt floating offshore demonstration project off the coast of Maine.

The New England Aqua Ventus offshore wind project is a critical milestone in the commercial realization of UMaine’s internationally recognized offshore wind technology that was developed at the Advanced Structures and Composites Center. The project has received major funding from the U.S. Department of Energy.
