UMaine will design an ultra-lightweight, corrosion-resistant, concrete floating offshore wind turbine, equipped with NASA motion mitigation technology, originally developed to reduce vibrations in rockets.

Official Press Release UMaine:

UMaine awarded nearly $1.4 million for transformational floating offshore wind energy technology

The University of Maine Advanced Structures and Composites Center (UMaine Composites Center) has been awarded nearly $1.4 million from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) program, and will collaborate on a more than $1.5 million award to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, both focused on research related to transformational floating offshore wind energy technology.

UMaine received a highly competitive $1,398,202 award from ARPA-E to design an ultra-lightweight, corrosion-resistant, concrete floating offshore wind turbine (FOWT), equipped with NASA motion mitigation technology, originally developed to reduce vibrations in rockets.  In addition, the UMaine Composites Center is a key collaborator in another... ...
