The demonstration project will consist of a single semi-submersible concrete floating platform that will support a commercial wind turbine (10-12 MW).
The floating hull technology (VolturnUS) was developed by UMaine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Center.
After winning funds from the US DOE and creating a successful prototype, UMaine and NEAV will move forward with this commercial scale project
UMaine will license its VolturnUS floating hull technology to NEAV
Positioned 14 miles off the coast of Maine
Further evaluate the floating technology;
Monitor environmental factors and;
Develop best practices for offshore wind to coexist with traditional marine activities.
