Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Design Passes ABS Review

of the concept by developing a 1:8 scale model and deploying it in Castine, Maine. Maine Aqua Ventus I, GP, LLC, is now leading a full-scale, two turbine demonstration project called New England Aqua Ventus I, a 12 megawatt (MW) floating offshore wind pilot project to develop a clean, renewable energy source off Maine’s shores. This pilot project will demonstrate the innovative VolturnUS at full-scale as a viable and economical alternative for offshore wind developments in water depths greater than 50 meters.   Anthony Viselli, University of Maine engineering manager, said ABS worked

Wind Surpasses Hydro as Largest US Renewable Energy Source

Wind energy has surpassed hydropower as the biggest source of renewable electricity in the United States following the sector's second-biggest quarter ever for new installations, a wind industry trade group said on Thursday. Wind installations totaled 82,183 megawatts at the end of 2016, enough to power 24 million homes, the American Wind Energy Association said in its fourth-quarter market report. By comparison, U.S. hydroelectric capacity stands at about 80,000 megawatts, according to the federal Energy Information Administration. Wind installations soared to 6,478 MW in the fourth quarter
