UMaine, NRG Systems, AWS Truepower, Leosphere form wind energy R&D partnership Print E-mail
The University of Maine's (UMaine) Advanced Structures and Composites Center (Orono Maine) announced Oct. 18 a partnership intended to gather measurements of wind activity at "hub height" (that is, at a distance above the water equal to the height of the rotor on an offshore wind turbine) in deepwater locations in the Gulf of Maine. The ASCC's partners are NRG Systems Inc. (Hinesburg, Vt.) which will supply the system that will be used to take the measurements; AWS Truepower LLC (Albany, N.Y.), UMaine’s Physical Oceanography Group, and Leosphere SAS (Orsay, France).  More...
