    U.S. WIND SETS TO SEA

    Continent's First Grid-Connected Offshore Wind Turbine Floats In Maine Waters

    June 13, 2013 (North American Windpower)

    “Europe continues to far outpace the U.S. and Canada when it comes to offshore wind projects…[but the University of Maine (UMaine) Advanced Structures and Composites Center’s] VolturnUS 1:8, a floating wind turbine prototype [is now generating power from the Gulf of Maine]…through an undersea cable…to Central Maine Power's grid…

    “The 65-foot-tall VolturnUS 1:8 is, as the name suggests, 1:8th the scale of a larger, 6 MW floating wind turbine…UMaine says the pilot program will supply data necessary to further the design of the university’s 6 MW VolturnUS turbines. The full-scale models are currently under development, and UMaine plans to deploy two of them by the end of 2016…”

    “Although North America has more than 60 GW of installed capacity from terrestrial wind projects, the continent still awaits its first full-scale offshore wind farm…

    “…Cape Wind’s 468 MW wind farm is slated to be built off the coast of Nantucket, and Cleveland-based LEEDCo’s proposed 20 MW to 30 MW Icebreaker project is to be located in Lake Erie…[T]he support structures are different - both developers plan to use wind turbines perched on monopile-based foundations as opposed to UMaine's floating turbine operating without a foundation…”
