Maine Marine Composites Completes Research Study on Offshore Wind Turbines


September, 2015 (Portland --) Maine Marine Composites has completed a government funded study of long term risk factors on floating offshore wind turbines. The study, funded by the U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and conducted in conjunction with researchers at the University of Maine, examined the key mechanisms that degrade mooring systems of offshore wind turbines. Real world case studies, including the Kyushu University 2 MW turbine and the University of Maine 12 kW VolturnUS demonstration project, were analyzed in detail to highlight the challenged in designing survivable mooring systems.
