Interior Secretary Ken Salazar recently toured the University of Maine’s Advanced Structures and Composites Centre (UMASCC) to learn more about testing, deployment, fabrication and environmental monitoring of the off-shore wind turbines.

According to UMASCC, Salazar reiterated that the Interior Department will work to expedite federal leases for ocean sites for deep-water energy projects. “”It is important that the world knows what’s happening here in Maine,”” Salazar said. “”Maine isn’t playing around, and Maine isn’t playing around for second place.””

UMASCC leads the DeepCWind Consortium, which also includes, nonprofits, utilities, businesses involved in offshore and marine design and construction, and firms with expertise in wind project citing. Their goal is to generate 5 gigawatts of power by 2030, employing floating turbines located 20-50 miles offshore.

Salazar was joined by the composite centre’s Director, Professor Habib Dagher, the Director of Maine’s Office of Energy Independence, Ken Fletcher; and US Senator Susan Collins.
