ASCC’s founding executive director, Dr. Habib Dagher, featured in Reuters for floating offshore wind

The Reuters article outlines the dichotomy of floating offshore wind on the East and West Coasts of the United States.  

“Maine is taking a ‘deliberate’ approach to scaling up floating wind, said Professor Habib Dagher, executive director at the University of Maine. ‘We often call it the 1, 10, 100 plan. It includes putting a single turbine in the water first, then 10 turbines, then doing commercial scale with 100 turbines or more,’ Dagher said.” (Reuters Article)

The Advanced Structures & Composites Center (ASCC) has been leading the development of Floating Offshore Wind on the East Coast for 15 years. Read here to learn more about the ASCC’s Ocean Engineering & Energy team and the development of ocean engineering technologies.
