ASCC offshore wind team welcomes naval architect, Addie Lindyberg to the team

ORONO, Maine 𑁋 The Advanced Structures and Composites Center (ASCC) continues to expand with the recent addition of Addie Lindyberg to the Offshore Wind Team.  She’ll be contributing to the New England Aqua Ventus I demonstration project,  the Gulf of Maine Floating Offshore Wind Research Array, and other projects in our floating offshore wind portfolio.

Originally from Orono, Lindyberg first had her eyes on the ASCC as a ten-year-old, fascinated by the early stages of testing for the VolturnUS 1:8 project. “Learning about the program at such a young age ignited a spark in me,” said Lindyberg. 

This passion led her to a career in offshore wind energy. Lindyburg studied naval architecture and marine engineering at Webb Institute, where she received dual Bachelor of Science degrees in those fields in 2021. During her time at Webb, she completed her senior thesis in the field of floating offshore wind. This project involved the design, construction, and testing of a floating offshore wind system.

Looking back to when she initially learned about the VolturnUS project, Lindyberg remarked that she “knew then, and even more now, that offshore wind is the future of energy for Maine and many other communities. I want to be part of making that future a reality.” 

Today, Lindyberg’s works has come full circle working on the very project that initially drew her to this field. Her work involves analyzing the turbine, platform, and mooring arrangement using computational methods and analysis software. This software allows us to predict how VolturnUS will react to the various environmental conditions it experiences off the Coast of Maine, and to ensure that the platform, anchors, and other components are sufficient to support the turbine.

“Addie’s specialized education and experience in naval architecture and marine engineering expand [our] ability to quickly design, analyze, and test novel floating offshore wind technologies and advance existing concepts through the design cycle. We are thrilled to have her join our team and excited to see her career develop,”  said Dr. Jacob Ward, offshore engineer, and Lindyberg’s supervisor.

Happy that her work here has brought her back to Orono, Lindyberg spends her time outside of work with her family, friends, and two cats. Like many others from this beautiful state, Lindyberg is excited to get out and explore all Maine has to offer.

The ASCC team is rapidly growing and always looking for talented individuals across all industries to join our team. For more information on open positions, visit the ASCC website or contact Kim Scribner, workforce coordinator, at
