Ashland Performance Materials will join a consortium of companies and university experts to develop, deploy and test three wind turbines off the Maine coastline.
This news follows a recent announcement by the U.S. Department of Energy, which awarded $8 million to the University of Maine for offshore, deepwater wind energy research.
The consortium’s aim is to optimize materials and designs for deep-water floating platforms. The group will investigate options for using lighter, corrosion-resistant hybrid composite materials, evaluate the ease of manufacturing various turbine components, and explore how best to deploy such platforms.
“We are looking forward to this collaborative effort. As the sole resin supplier to this project, we were pleased to have our efforts in resin science and development recognized by the University of Maine,” said Ruben Bake, Global Marketing Director, Ashland Performance Materials.
