Thank you for expressing your interest in attending the launch of the VolturnUS 1:8-scale, the first grid-connected floating offshore wind turbine in the U.S. 

Please disclose your full first and last name and the official number of guests in your party.

The event will be held at Cianbro Constructiors, 517 South Main Street, Brewer, Maine on May 31, 2013 at 11 AM. 
 
The VolturnUS technology is the culmination of over five years of collaborative R&D conducted by the University of Maine-led DeepCwind Consortium. The DeepCwind Consortium Research Program is a unique public-private partnership funded by the Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation-Partnerships for Innovation, the Maine Technology Institute, the State of Maine, the University of Maine, and over 30 industrial partners. 
 
Data acquired during the 2013 deployments off Castine, Maine, will be used to optimize the design of UMaine’s patent-pending VolturnUS floating wind turbine system. The program goal is to reduce the cost of offshore wind to 10 cents/kWh by 2020, in order to compete with other forms of electricity generation without subsidies.
 
This launch celebrates an important milestone in the development of a cost-effective, job-creating, innovative U.S. offshore wind technology.

For questions about the event, please contact Josh Plourde at (207) 581-2117 or at josh.plourde@maine.edu.
