Cianbro Enters Final Stages of UMaine's Offshore Wind Laboratory Project


Progress on the construction of the state-of-the-art Offshore Wind Laboratory at the University of Maine is moving quickly and smoothly toward a June completion date. The facility will be an important focal point for upcoming research to build modern deep-sea wind turbines designed to harvest electricity from the robust winds in the Gulf of Maine. The facility will be able to house and test the efficiency and durability of massive wind blades, while determining the impacts of offshore marine conditions on floating turbine designs. But the Lab's usefulness doesn't end with wind.

"The new facility will house the largest structural reaction floor in the U.S., providing the unique ability to conduct static and fatigue tests on bridges and buildings," said Dr. Habib Dagher, the Director of UMaine's Advanced Structures and Composites Center. "The facility will also have a nanocomposites laboratory to develop new advanced materials that hold up to the punishing environment offshore."
